The Pinewood of Torricella

By Valentina Teti (aged 9)

On the swing

Children

Go down and up

Whilst their parents are talking.

At a certain point

It rains and rains

And everyone runs for shelter

Some under the firs, some under the pines

And some go home.

And everyone looks at

Torricella which is crying.
