Raw translation of the complete text:
The city was full of noise: it was increasingly difficult to talk and listen. And then there was the silent wood. But in the silence of the woods we lost ourselves. Who could not stand the noise of the city went into the woods, and the silence took him away. So word spread that there was an ogre in the woods. Soldiers were sent and even those disappeared. When Luì the madman arrived in the city, he found noise and long faces. Someone told him the story of those who disappeared in silence and to Luì was a great desire to take a walk in the woods. But he understood that it was necessary to study the language of wind and rain, stones, wood and earth. And after so much study, Luì invented a strange staff that made a soft noise with each step. Tric trac, fran fran troc. Thus the wood was no longer so silent. Then, the shapes of the trees and the earth tried to deceive it. But Luì with his little knife carved the wood and collected stones, and tied branches and made whales orf elephants. The illusions of the silent wood became things to touch and all those who had lost started to jump out like mushrooms. From that day all the children wanted the sound sticks of Luì so as not to get lost in silence and noise. And when they asked Luì what name to give to his sticks, he said: call them rattles. And so it was.
