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

Julie Anne Nelson
When Julie Anne Nelson isn't working as a technical editor, she loves to live out her passion for young adult fiction through her writing. Her wildly popular The Sevens series was inspired by a Percy Shelley poem and, as our author of the day, she tells us all about it. Nelson also talks about her writing habits, her tendency to sneak extra books in between writing/editing the main series and how her teaching career inspired her to write for young adults.
