February 2015 Theme Day: What would you miss?


If I had to leave forever my city/province I would miss most my mountains,
my friends and my mother's language.


As a Bonus a Poem of my friend Roland Verra in Ladin language
(my mother's language)

*******

Ala fin dl viac
te tieres dalonc
che duc va a crì
me sënti sota l ciarijé
y scoti su
la gotes pesoces
tuman tla veja
che les dlot...

L ncësa ie ulache
n uel redierjer
da uni marueia...

(Roland Verra)

*******

At the end of the voyage
in faraway countries
all are craving for
I sit down
under the cherry-tree
and listen
to the heavy drops
falling on the grass
and drowning there...

Your home is where
you want to return to
from any marvel...

What a superb poem...I think, Karl, if you move away it better be to Switzerland or to the Rocky Mountains in the USA! :)

Lovely. And a language I previously knew nothing about....

The mountains of South Tyrol are spectacular. It is easy to see why you would miss them. (And a fine bonus poem!)

I can see why you'd miss the mountains. They are so beautiful!

Important to leave old languages alive, I can also understand that you would miss the mountains.

Ein wunderschöner Blick! Kann ich absolut verstehen, dass du deine Heimat vermissen würdest!

I also would miss the mountains if I lived where you live.
You had excellent reasons to stay to miss your home region.
