if you want to see a whale

if you want to see a whale
words by Julie Fogliano

Fa just un any que vaig rescatar aquesta balena, (vivia en una ciutat sense blaus ni verds,
sense mar).
Mentrestant, jo vaig esperar i esperar . . . ,
fins que, després d'alguna distracció, em va semblar que la podria veure, o no.
if you want to see a whale
you will need a window
and an ocean
and time for waiting
and time for looking
and time for wondering "is that a whale?"
and time for realizing "no, it's just a bird"
 (...)
if you want to see a wahle
there's no time to watch the pelican
who may or may not be smiling
while sitting, satring, looking out
I així se'n van els versos d'aquest poema en calma, perdut en l'oceà.
if you want to see a whale
keep both eyes on the sea
and wait . . .
and wait . . .

and wait . . .
