English to Italian: The little white bird General field: Art/Literary Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Source text - English Sometimes the little boy who calls me father brings me an invitation from his mother: "I shall be so pleased if you will come and see me," and I always reply in some such words as these: "Dear madam, I decline." And if David asks why I decline, I explain that it is because I have no desire to meet the woman.
"Come this time, father," he urged lately, "for it is her birthday, and she is twenty-six," which is so great an age to David, that I think he fears she cannot last much longer.
Translation - Italian A volte il bambino che mi chiama papà mi porta un invito da parte di sua madre: “Sarei molto lieta se venisse a trovarmi” e io rispondo sempre con parole come queste: “Cara signora, declino l’invito.” E se David chiede il motivo del mio rifiuto, gli spiego che non ho nessuna voglia di incontrare questa donna.
“Vieni questa volta, papà” insisteva recentemente, “è il suo compleanno, ha ventisei anni”, un’età così incredibile per David che credo abbia paura che sua madre non possa vivere più a lungo.
