Three Roads

On “Wheat Field with Crows”, last painting of Van Gogh.

 

The fullness of a golden wheat field is crowned

by a flock of dark birds in its migratory fly away.

The health and vigor of the landscape contrasts

with the menace of a cloudy and stormy sky,

which does not prevent the birds’ journey.

They bring by birth its right route

and are the owners of the sky.

Poor humans do not fly and are always doubting

their choice of the three roads Gogh has painted.

We are the owners of the earth and its richness,

but we have neither a little of the crows’ sense.
