A Dream Deferred

Langston Hughes

OriginalTraduzione italiana (probabilmente di Alessandro Portelli)
What happens to a dream deferred?Che succede a un sogno differito?
Does it dry upsi inaridisce
Like a raisin in the sun?come un acino d'uva al sole?
Or fester like a sore--O s'infetta come una piaga -
And then run?e marcisce?
Does it stink like rotten meat?Puzza come carne andata a male?
Or crust and sugar over--O si incrosta di zucchero -
like a syrupy sweet?come un dolce sciropposo?
Maybe it just sagsForse si affloscia
like a heavy load.come un grosso peso.
Or does it explode?O esplode?
