Dise 'na vecia[1]:
Che mondo bruto!
Che tempi oribili
Xe mai sti qua!

             Par impossibile:
                S'à cambià tuto
                In te 'sti strepiti
                Tuto à cambià !

Dise 'na zovene:
Tempi beati!
Mi tuta in gringola[2]
Me sento andar.

             Se vive in estasi
                Che se par mati;
                Qua de continuo
                Se pol amar.

La vecia brontola:
Bógia de un fredo!
Me sento i brividi
Per i ossi andar,

             Presto in malorsega[3]
                Andar me vedo,
                Presto me imagino
                Dover crepar!

Canta la picola:
El moro mio[4]
Coi oci luçidi
El m'à vardà ;

             Lu xe el mio idolo,
                Lu xe 'l mio Dio;

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology. This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
