    Wonderful drawings and a very nice poem.
    “Di tutte le donne dolci e geniali,
    le mamme sono le piu speciali:
    sono un esempio di vero amore
    e, fra tutte, tu sei la migliore.”

    “Of all the sweet and bright women,
    mothers are the most special ones:
    they are a model of true love
    and, among all, you’re the best.”

    Liliana

    Thanks Liliana for your words!

    The children created this poem with the teacher of italian.
    It continues in this way:

    ” A te mi lega un affetto profondo,
    perchè sei tu che mi hai messo al mondo”

    ” A deep affect ties me to you
    because you are who brought me in the world.”

    “Il tempo passa, ma non ti sfiora,
    sei sempre bella, non sei affatto cambiata
    ti vedo solo un po’ preoccupata,
    per i pericoli che sono in agguato.”

    “The time goes, but it doesn’t skim you,
    You’re always beatiful, you didn’t change at all,
    I only see you a bit worried,
    for the dangers that lie in wait. ”

    “Ma non temere, mia cara mamma,
    i tuoi preziosi consigli seguirò,
    e sulla retta via sempre camminerò.”

    ” But don’t worry, my dear mum,
    I always will follow your precious advices,
    and I always will be on the right way.”

    ” Le tue speranze non deluderò,
    e tante soddisfazioni ti darò.”

    ” I won’t disappoint your aspectations,
    and I’ll give you a many satisfactions.”

    ” Ti sarò grata per tutta la vita,
    e, anche quando un giorno, forse, lontano
    me ne andrò, per sempre nel mio cuore ti porterò.”

    ” I’ll be grateful to you for all my life,
    and, even one day, maybe, I’ll go far away,
    I ‘ll get you in my heart forever.”

    Sorry for the missing rhymes!!!

    They’re little poets, they won the first price in a poetry competition with a poem about “diversity” just some week ago.
