Crisci ‘nta Sicily, beloved and dear,
un fruttu ch’avi ‘na ducizza rare,
but he has tuccari cu’ precautions
picchi spini you don’t have millions.
Me figghiu m’addumanna: “Ma piccì
Is nature made of accusations?
Un fruttu tantu bonu of food
It’s chinu ‘i spini ca nun si po’ tuccari.
“La Ficurinnia”, you answered us iu,
“the fici d’accussì Domini Diu,
pi ‘nsignari to all the people
ca i cosi belli nun su’ effort ‘i nenti.
‘U fattu, then, I chose Sicily
Lufici di prupositu, my pi,
picchì ‘stu fruttu is the only one, among many,
ca po’ reprisintari ‘st’abitanti.
It’s fattu comu ‘a genti siciliana,
apparently very far away,
but s’arrinesci a junciri ‘o so’ cori
I saw how many amuri you know how to give”.
