Youth must be foolish…

NONNO [cutting in on the Germans]:

     Youth must be foolish and mirthful and blind,

     Gaze not before and glance not behind,

     Mark not…

[He falters again.]

HANNAH [prompting him, holding tightly onto his arm]:

     Mark not the shadow that darkens the way -

[They recite the next lines together.]

     Regret not the glitter of any lost day,

     But laugh with no reason except the red wine,

     For youth must be youthful and foolish and blind!
