Spoon River Anthology - Frank Drummer (English)

  Out of a cell into this darkened space--

  The end at twenty-five!

  My tongue could not speak what stirred within me,

  And the village thought me a fool.

  Yet at the start there was a clear vision,

  A high and urgent purpose in my soul

  Which drove me on trying to memorize

Frank Drummer (Italian)

Fuori di una cella in questo spazio oscurato -

la fine a venticinque anni! La mia lingua

non riusciva a pronunciare ciò che si agitava

dentro di me e il villaggio mi prese per matto.

Eppure all'inizio c'era una visione chiara,

un alto e urgente proposito nella mia anima

che mi spingeva a cercare di imparare a memoria
