Poem in Ladin language by Roland Verra. (read the translation below).

Prova ma n iede
a pensé do:

l surëdl se stënta
a romper tres l nibl,
l verzon s'la dorm
sota la bruma,
savan che l n'ie nia ëura
de levé

y ti speranzes
ne se nfida nianca
a se dé da ntënder
sota la chëutra foscia
de ti tëmes...


Now try
to think of this:

the sun is barely able
to break through the clouds,
the garden is sleeping
under the frost,
well aware
it's no time to awaken

and your hopes
do not dare
to crawl out
from under the blanket
of your fears...

Fortunately I was not there at that time...
I only saw (and heard) it from a appropriate distance.
