Albe nuove si dischiudono
come corolle di fiori.
Offrono nuovi odori
e colori tutti nuovi
a chi saprà divenire
da crisalide farfalla
senza restare racchiuso
nel bozzolo, prigioniero
di illusorie certezze.
Albe nuove illumineranno
nuovi orizzonti,
rigenerati spiriti
come rinate farfalle
spiccheranno il volo
verso nuove illusioni.
(Albe nuove - Valter Viani )
