Dormono, dormono, dormono sulla collina…

Edgar Lee Masters su di un francobollo...The Hill

Where are Elmer, Herman, Bert, Tom and Charley,
The weak of will, the strong of arm, the clown, the boozer, the fighter?
All, all are sleeping on the hill.

One passed in a fever,
One was burned in a mine,
One was killed in a brawl,
One died in a jail,
One fell from a bridge toiling for children and wife-
All, all are sleeping, sleeping, sleeping on the hill.

Where are Ella, Kate, Mag, Lizzie and Edith,
The tender heart, the simple soul, the loud, the proud, the happy one?–
All, all are sleeping on the hill.

One died in shameful child-birth,
One of a thwarted love,
One at the hands of a brute in a brothel,
One of a broken pride, in the search for heart’s desire;
One after life in far-away London and Paris
Was brought to her little space by Ella and Kate and Mag–
All, all are sleeping, sleeping, sleeping on the hill.

Where are Uncle Isaac and Aunt Emily,
And old Towny Kincaid and Sevigne Houghton,
And Major Walker who had talked
With venerable men of the revolution?–
All, all are sleeping on the hill.

They brought them dead sons from the war,
And daughters whom life had crushed,
And their children fatherless, crying–
All, all are sleeping, sleeping, sleeping on the hill.
Where is Old Fiddler Jones
Who played with life all his ninety years,
Braving the sleet with bared breast,
Drinking, rioting, thinking neither of wife nor kin,
Nor gold, nor love, nor heaven?
Lo! he babbles of the fish-frys of long ago,
Of the horse-races of long ago at Clary’s Grove,
Of what Abe Lincoln said
One time at Springfield.

A proposito di Ivan Agliardi

Ho immaginazione e creatività, ma non sono un artista. Faccio interagire tra loro aziende dando vita a nuove imprese, ma non sono un imprenditore. Mi occupo da oltre 15 anni di server Linux, applicazioni web, database, domini, hosting, housing, sicurezza informatica e sistemi embedded, ma non sono un tecnico. Faccio SEO, SEM, SMM e fornisco contenuti attraverso i miei copyrighter, ma non sono un uomo marketing. Ora ho di nuovo un blog, ma non sono un blogger. Sono solo un umanista e un informatico della prima ora. E mi circondo di gente con le palle :)
