Save the last dance

by Mimmo Mallamo April. 15, 2013 3545 views

I cannot dance upon my Toes -
No Man instructed me -
But oftentimes, among my mind,
A Glee possesseth me,
That had I Ballet knowledge -
Would put itself abroad
In Pirouette to blanch a Troupe -
Or lay a Prima, mad

Non sono capace di danzare sulle Punte -
Nessuno mi ha istruito -
Ma spesse volte, nella mente,
Una Gioia mi possiede,
Che se avessi pratica di Balletto -
Renderei palese
In Piroette da far impallidire una Compagnia -
O lasciare una Primadonna, di stucco


(Emily Dickinson, “The Complete Poems”, F381/J326)
