WEDDING IN LIOTRIVI

…JUST LIKE THE OLD TIMES


“–Tomorrow is the wedding day.

Really, how far these last days are spending…

Tomorrow the cock should wake us up, with his first speech ...

And by the afternoon when the horseman puts the saddle on the horse, everything will be set and pretty ...

Tables strewed, foods in wood ovens, the bread hot and wines chilled.

And, these jobs, my child are not quickly done because we should make everything by hand!

Great preparations… that require good housewives and willing men!

This day, everything must be equal to the old times…

And by the time we will hear the horse’s neigh, which will come up among the olive trees and vineyards,

we all should be happy and glad, everyone for his own reason…

Do not complain, my son, and you will see that all this labor and all this waiting will not be wasted…

You will see this thru the eyes of the visitors leaving, thru the smile of the couple, thru the father’s tear of happiness…

then you will understand that such a day should be only like this….”
