A Silvia (un’altra)

Ti ho sognata Silvia stanotte –
da quanti anni… avevi due figli
e piegavi in silenzio vestiti
asciugamani calze calzini
intenta come allora ai tuoi studi
mentre toccavo la tua valigia
già pronta la cerniera incollata
da me tanti anni prima e teneva
attraverso un ricordo oltre il tempo
e te lo dicevo accarezzando
l’orrendo scotch e tu sorridevi
senza muovere ciglio pudica
senza smettere con tenerezza
e “lontana come in uno specchio”.
Il male del tempo mi svegliava.

A Silvia (una altra)

He somiat amb tu aquesta nit
(quants anys…) Tenies dos fills
i plegaves en silenci els vestits
tovalloles calces mitjons
absorta com abans als teus estudis
mentre tocava la teua maleta
disposada ja la cremallera apegada
per mi fa tants anys i que resistia
a través d’un record més enllà del temps
i t’ho deia acariciant
l’horrible cinta adhesiva i tu somreies
sense moure una cella, púdica
sense aturar-te amb tendresa
i “llunyana com dins d’un espill”.
El mal del temps em despertava.

Za Silviju (jednu drugu)

Snio sam te noćas Silvija –
koliko samo godina…imala si dvoje djece
i spokojna slagala
ručnike čarape čarapice
u mislima kao i nekoć na tvoje studije
dok sam ja dodirivao tvoj kovčeg
već spreman sa zaljepljenim smičkom
koji je čuvao sjećanje onkraj svog vremena
to sam ti govorio milujući
taj odvratan selotejp i ti si se smiješila
ne trepćući očima sramno
ne prikrivajući nježnost
“daleka kao u nekom zrcalu”.
Zlo vremena me probudilo.

To Silva (another)

I dreamed of you, Silvia, last night –
it’s been so long… you had two children
and were silently folding clothes
towels stockings socks
intent on your studies as you were then
while I touched your suitcase
already packed and waiting the zipper
glued back by me years before and it held
through a memory beyond time
and I told you as I stroked
that horrible tape and you smiled
without batting an eye discrete
without stopping, tenderly
and “far away as in a mirror”.
The pain of time woke me.

À Silvia (une autre)

J’ai rêvé de toi Silvia cette nuit
depuis combien d’années… deux enfants…
tu pliais des vêtements en silence,
serviettes, chaussettes, mi-bas,
prise comme alors par tes études
j’ai touché ta valise déjà prête
la fermeture que j’avais collée
tant d’années auparavant tenait toujours
au delà du temps, par un souvenir
et je te le disais en caressant
le scotch hideux et tu souriais
sans mouvoir un cil, pudique
sans t’arrêter, tendrement
et lointaine comme dans un miroir.
Le mal du temps me réveillait.

An Silvia (eine andere)

Von dir, Silvia, habe ich geträumt heute Nacht
nach so vielen Jahren … du hattest zwei Kinder
hast schweigend Kleider gefaltet
Handtücher Strümpfe Socken
aufmerksam wie damals beim Studieren
während ich deinen Koffer berührte
schon gepackt, den Verschluss hatte ich
vor so vielen Jahren angeklebt und er hielt
wie eine Erinnerung über die Zeit
und als ich es dir sagte, streichelte ich
das hässliche Klebeband und du hast gelächelt
scheu ohne eine Wimper zu bewegen
ohne aufzuhören, zärtlich
und “so weit weg wie in einem Spiegel”.
Das Weh der Zeit hat mich geweckt.

Στη Σίλβια (κάποια άλλη)

Σε ονειρεύτηκα Σίλβια χθες βράδυ
Πόσα χρόνια τώρα … είχες δυό παιδιά
Και δίπλωνες σιωπιλή ρούχα
πετσέτες κάλτσες καλτσάκια
Αφοσιωμένη όπως τότε στις σπουδές σου
Ενώ εγώ άγγιζα τη βαλίτσα σου
Έτοιμη με το κλείσιμο κολλημένο
από μένα εδώ και χρόνια κρατούσε
μέσα από τη θύμηση πέρα απ’ το χρόνο
και σου τόλεγα χαϊδεύοντας
το απαίσιο σελοτέιπ κι εσύ γελούσες
δίχως προσβολή, σεμνή
δίχως να σταματάς, με τρυφεράδα
και «μακρινή σαν μέσα από καθρέφτη»
ο πόνος του χρόνου με ξυπνούσε.

Do Sylwii (inna) 

Śniłem o Tobie, Sylwio, wczoraj w nocy –
tak wiele lat… miałaś dwoje dzieci
i cicho składałaś ubrania
ręczniki pończochy skarpety
skupiona jak za studenckich dni
gdy dotknąłem Twojej walizki
gotowy  suwak sklejony
przeze mnie lata temu wytrzymał
przez pamięć poza czasem
i rzekłem Ci głaszcząc czule
straszna taśma klejąca, a Ty się uśmiechnęłaś
bez mrugnięcia skromna
nieprzerwanie z czułością
i “daleko jak w lustrze”.
Ból czasu mnie obudził.

A Silvia (outra)

Sonhei com você, Silvia, hoje à noite –
quanto tantos… você tinha dois filhos
e dobrava roupas em silêncio
toalhas peças meias
atenta como fazia com os estudos
enquanto eu tocava sua mala
já pronta, a dobradiça colada
por mim anos antes e salda
num recordo além do tempo
e eu lhe dizia isso ameigando
o péssimo scotch e você sorria
pudica sem nem piscar
sem deter-se com ternura
e “distante como em um espelho”.
O mal do tempo me acordava.

Către (o altă) Silvia

Te-am visat Silvia astă noapte
De câţi ani… aveai doi copii
Şi împătureai în linişte haine
Prosoape ciorapi şosete
Cuprinsă cum erai odata la învăţat
În timp ce atingeam valiza ta
Gata pregatită cu fermoarul lipit
De mine cu mulţi ani în urmă şi încă ţinea
Printr-o amintire dincolo de timp
Iar eu îţi spuneam asta mângâind
Scotch-ul oribil iar tu zâmbeai
Fără să mişti o sprînceană pudică
Fără să te opreşti cu duioşie
Şi “îndepărtată ca într-o oglindă”.
Durerea timpului mă trezea.

Anoche soñé contigo Silvia –
cuántos años… tenías dos hijos
y en silencio doblabas vestidos
toallas medias calcetines
absorta como entonces en tus estudios
mientras tocaba tu valija
ya lista la cremallera encolada
años antes por mí que resistía
a través de un recuerdo más allá del tiempo
y te lo decía acariciando
el horroroso scotch y sonreías
sin mover pestaña recatada
sin detenerte con ternura
y “lejana como en un espejo”.
El mal del tiempo me despertaba.

Till Silvia (en annan)

Jag drömde om dig inatt Silvia
det var många år sedan… du hade två barn
och under tystnad vek du kläder
handdukar långstrumpor strumpor
försjunken som då av dina studier
medan jag rörde vid din resväska
redan färdig dragkedjan fastlimmad
av mig många år tidigare och den höll
tvärsigenom ett minne bortom tiden
och jag sa det till dig medan jag smekte
den förfärliga tejpen och du log
utan att röra en min pryd
utan att upphöra med ömhet
och “långt bort såsom i en spegel”.
Tidens ondska väckte mig.

Compagnia delle poete is a theatre poetry ensemble created in the summer of 2009 on the initiative of Mia Lecomte. Its members are all foreign or Italian-foreign women poets writing in Italian – Prisca Agustoni, Cristina Ali Farah, Anna Belozorovitch, Livia Bazu, Laure Cambau, Adriana Langtry, Mia Lecomte, Sarah Zuhra Lukanić, Vera Lucia de Oliveira, Helene Paraskeva, Brenda Porster, Begonya Pozo, Barbara Pumhösel, Melita Richter, Francisca Paz Rojas, Candelaria Romero, Barbara Serdakowski, Jacqueline Spaccini, Eva Taylor –: twenty poets from various continents, each with her own particular history of migration and plurilinguism.
La Compagnia is a sort of “orchestra” that can harmonize the texts of poets influenced by their diverse linguistic and cultural traditions, to create performances in which the word is supported and amplified by different artistic languages. Besides its theatrical activity, the Compagnia is often invited to take part in academic and literary seminars, conferences and workshops, both in Italy and abroad, on the subject of transnational literatures.
This unpublished poem by Jean-Charles Vegliante was written in Italian and translated for the first time in the various languages of the Compagnia. This is the first of a series of plurilingual translations of unpublished texts by contemporary poets edited by the Compagnia.
