Viaţa

Жизнь

Cu priviri opace, cu inima moartă să te arunci de pe munte în mare,
La ceas când, precum drapelele, în cer flutură zorii roz-fumurii,
Or liber să devii în temniţă, cum vulturii sunt liberi,
Or neaşteptata pace s-o găseşti în afumata colibă de sălbatic!
Da, am înţeles. Simbolul vieţii nu e poetul ce-nţelepciuni creează
Şi nici ostaşul cu inimă puternică şi nici plugarul ce brăzdează ogorul,
– Iată: c-un zâmbet ironic copilul-împărat pe-o blană de leu,
Uitându-şi jucăriile între albele mânuţe obosite.

The Sun of the Spirit

How could we walk in peace, before, / expecting no joy, no disaster, / not dreaming of battles, of flaming retreats, / or the roaring trumpet of victory ? / / How could we - but it’s not too late, / the sun of the spirit bends down to us - / soothing, threatening, it pours / a...

The Lost Tram

I was walking down an unfamiliar street, / and suddenly I heard the caws of crows, / and distant thunder, and a ringing lute: / a tram flew by, before my eyes. / / Just how I ran onto its running board / remains a mystery. / The tail it trailed, even in daylight, / was firebird-fier...

Polite With Life of Hard Modernity

Polite with life of hard modernity: / Between us two, there is a border, / As all, that makes life's proud grins guaranteed / Is my sole bliss, a cure from boredom. / / My triumph, glory, deeds, so wonderful - / Lost talk, today by fate embezzled, / Ring through my soul, like copper t...

Credo

From where I came is quite beyond me... / Nor do I know for where I’m bound, / When blazing with the flush of victory / I’m in my sparkling garden found. / / And when I’ve had my fill of beauty, / And bored become of roses’ touch, / And when my spirit baulks at...
