An extract from the Italian version of the Little Prince.
Un tempo lontano, quando avevo sei anni, in un libro sulle foreste primordiali, intitolato "Storie vissute della natura", vidi un magnifico disegno. Rappresentava un serpente boa nell'atto di inghiottire un animale. Eccovi la copia del disegno.
A long time ago, when I was six years old, in a book about primeval forests, called 'True Stories from Nature', I saw a magnificant drawing. It was a picture of a boa constrictor in the act of swallowing an animal. Here is a copy of the drawing.
Padre nostro che sei nei cieli,
sia santificato il tuo nome.
venga il tuo regno,
sia fatta la tua volontà,
come in cielo così in terra.
Dacci oggi il nostro pane quotidiano,
rimetti a noi i nostri debiti,
come noi li rimettiamo ai nostri debitori
e non ci indurre in tentazione,
ma liberaci dal male.
Di notte tutti i gatti sono grigi. By night, all cats are grey.
