Vaalin valta / Puterea de a alege

 

Muilla olkoon vaalin valta,
mull’ ei ollut milloinkaan;
kuljin yltä taikka alta,
itseäni täytin vaan;
minkä tein, mun tehdä täytyi,
mit’ en tehnyt, voinut en;
vihdoin ilta hämärtäytyi,
lankes hetki hiljainen.

Pankaa patsas haudalleni,
kiveen tämä kirjoitus:
”Synkkä niinkuin sydämeni
oli mulle sallimus.
Itse iskin piistä tulta,
sytyin, hehkuin tuokion,
paloi paras laulu multa,
tässä tuhka tumma on.”

Puterea de a alege

Poata altii sa aleaga,
eu nicicand nu am putut;
zbor, taras, o viata-ntreaga
doar pe mine m-am nascut;
ce-am facut, a fost porunca,
ce n-am facut, n-am putut;
in sfarsit in mine-i seara,
si-n tacere am cazut.

Pe mormant sa-mi puneti piatra,
si pe ea puneti a scrie:
“Ca si inima-mi amara
mi-a fost soarta pe vecie.
Singur cremenea am ars-o
ca sa luminez o clipa,
mi s-a ars al vietii cantec,
sunt cenusa din aripa”

Mirror / Oglinda

Mirror / Oglinda

A white room and a party going on
and I was standing with some friends
under a large gilt-framed mirror
that tilted slightly forward
over the fireplace.
We were drinking whiskey
and some of us, feeling no pain,
were trying to decide
what precise shade of yellow
the setting sun turned our drinks.
I closed my eyes briefly,
then looked up into the mirror:
a woman in a green dress leaned
against the far wall.
She seemed distracted,
the fingers of one hand
fidgeted with her necklace,
and she was staring into the mirror,
not at me, but past me, into a space
that might be filled by someone
yet to arrive, who at that moment
could be starting the journey
which would lead eventually to her.
Then, suddenly, my friends
said it was time to move on.
This was years ago,
and though I have forgotten
where we went and who we all were,
I still recall that moment of looking up
and seeing the woman stare past me
into a place I could only imagine,
and each time it is with a pang,
as if just then I were stepping
from the depths of the mirror
into that white room, breathless and eager,
only to discover too late
that she is not there.

Oglinda

O camera alba si o petrecere continuand
si eu stand in picioare cu cativa prieteni
sub o oglinda mare cu rama aurita
care se inclina usor inainte
peste semineu.
Beam whiskey
si unii dintre noi, nesimtind durere,
incercau sa decida
in ce nuanta precisa de galben
soarele apunand ne colora bautura.
Am inchis ochii scurt timp,
apoi am privit in sus in oglinda:
o femeie in rochie verde se rezema
de peretele departat.
Parea distrasa,
degetele de la o mana
se jucau cu colierul,
si ea privea fix in oglinda,
nu la mine, ci peste mine, intr-un spatiu
ce putea fi umplut de cineva
inca nesosit, care in acel moment
putea sa inceapa calatoria
care l-ar fi dus eventual spre ea.
Apoi, deodata, prietenii mei
au spus ca e timpul sa mergem.
Asta a fost cu ani in urma,
si desi am uitat
unde am mers si cine eram noi toti,
imi amintesc inca acel moment privind in sus
si vazand femeia privind fix peste mine
intr-un loc pe care mi-l puteam doar imagina,
si de fiece data simt o durere,
ca si cum chiar atunci as pasi
din adancurile oglinzii
in acea camera alba, fara suflare si dornic
doar sa descopar prea tarziu
ca ea nu este acolo.

SMÄRTAN / THE PAIN / DUREREA / KIPU

 
Lyckan har inga sånger, lyckan har inga tankar, lyckan har ingenting.
Stöt till din lycka att hon går sönder, ty lyckan är ond.
Lyckan kommer sakta med morgonens susning i sovande snår,
lyckan glider undan i lätta molnbilder över djupblå djup,
lyckan är fältet som sover i middagens glöd
eller havets ändlösa vidd under baddet av lodräta strålar,
lyckan är maktlös, hon sover och andas och vet av ingenting…
Känner du smärtan? Hon är stark och stor med hemligt knutna nävar.
Känner du smärtan? Hon är hoppfullt leende med förgråtna ögon.
Smärtan ger oss allt vad vi behöva –
hon ger oss nycklarna till dödens rike,
hon skjuter oss in genom porten, då vi ännu tveka.
Smärtan döper barnen och vakar med modern
och smider alla de gyllene bröllopsringarna.
Smärtan härskar över alla, hon slätar tänkarens panna,
hon fäster smycket kring den åtrådda kvinnans hals,
hon står i dörren när mannen kommer ut från sin älskade…
Vad är det ännu smärtan ger åt sina älsklingar?
Jag vet ej mer.
Hon ger pärlor och blommor, hon ger sånger och drömmar,
hon ger oss tusen kyssar som alla äro tomma,
hon ger den enda kyssen som är verklig.
Hon ger oss våra sällsamma själar och besynnerliga tycken,
hon ger oss alla livets högsta vinster:
kärlek, ensamhet och dödens ansikte.

THE PAIN
 
Happiness has no songs, happiness has no thoughts, happiness has nothing.
Smash your happiness until she breaks, for happiness is evil.
Happiness comes slowly in the sleepy sighs of morning bushes
happiness glides away in light clouds over deep blue depths,
happiness is the field that sleeps in the glow of afternoon
or the sea’s endless spirit under the bath of vertical rays,
happiness is powerless, she sleeps and breathes and knows nothing …
Do you feel the pain? she is strong and big with secretly clenched fists.
Do you feel the pain? she is hopefully smiling with weeping eyes.
The pain gives us everything we need –
she gives us the keys to the kingdom of death,
she pushes us through the gate, as we still hesitate.
The pain baptizes the children and awakes with the mother
and forges all the golden wedding rings.
the pain rules over everyone, she caresses the forehead of the thinker,
she fastens the jewelery around the loved woman’s neck,
she stands in the doorway when the man comes out from his beloved …
What else is the pain giving to her loved ones?
I know no more.
She gives beads and flowers, she gives songs and dreams,
she gives us a thousand kisses that are all empty,
she gives the only kiss that is real.
she gives us our rare souls and strange things,
she gives us all the highest benefits of life:
love, loneliness and the face of death.

DUREREA
 
Fericirea nu are cântece, fericirea nu are gânduri, fericirea nu are nimic.
Izbeste fericirea pana se face bucati , căci fericirea este diabolica.
Fericirea vine liniștit in suspinul adormit al tufisurilor diminetii.,
fericirea se îndepărtează în nori ușori peste adâncimile albastre,
fericirea este câmpul care doarme în strălucirea amiezei
sau spiritul infinit al mării scaldata in raze verticale,
fericirea este neputincioasă, ea doarme și respiră și nu știe nimic…
Simți durerea? E puternică și mare, cu pumnii stransi în secret.
Simți durerea? Zâmbește sperand cu ochii umflati de plans.
Durerea ne dă tot ce avem nevoie –
ea ne dă cheile împărăției morții,
ne împinge prin poarta, fiindcă încă ezităm.
Durerea botează copiii și vegheaza cu mama
și falsifica toate verighetele de aur.
Durerea stă la dispoziția tuturor, mangaie fruntea gânditorului,
ea leagă bijuteriile la gâtul femeii,
ea sta in pragul ușii când bărbatul pleaca de la iubita sa …
Ce altceva durerea dăruiește celor dragi?
Nu mai știu.
Oferă margele și flori, dă cantece și vise,
ea ne dă o mie de sărutări care sunt toate goale,
Ea dă singurul sărut care este real.
Ea ne dă sufletele noastre rare și lucrurile ciudate,
ea ne dă cele mai mari beneficii ale vieții:
iubirea, singurătatea și fața morții.

KIPU
 
Onnella ei ole lauluja, onnella ei ole ajatuksia, onnella ei ole mitään.
Tönäise onneasi niin, että se särkyy, sillä onni on paha.
Onni tulee hiljaa aamun huokauksessa nukkuvissa pensaissa,
onni liukuu pois kevyissä pilvissä yli syvänsinisen syvyyden,
onni on tasanko, joka nukkuu keskipäivän hehkussa
tai meren loputon aava auringon pystysuorien säteiden paahteessa,
onni on voimaton, se nukkuu ja hengittää
eikä tiedä mistään mitään…
Tunnetko kivun? Se on vahva ja iso ja sillä on
kädet salaa nyrkissä.
Tunnetko kivun? Se hymyilee toiveikkaasti
itkettynein silmin.
Kipu antaa meille kaiken, mitä tarvitsemme –
se antaa meille kuoleman valtakunnan avaimet,
se työntää meidät portista sisään,
kun me vielä epäröimme.
Kipu kastaa lapset ja valvoo äidin kanssa
ja takoo kaikki kultaiset vihkisormukset.
Kipu hallitsee kaikkia, se siloittaa ajattelijan otsan,
se kiinnittää korun halutun naisen kaulaan,
se seisoo ovella, kun mies tulee ulos rakkaansa luota…
Mitä muuta kipu antaa rakkailleen?
En tiedä enää.
Se antaa helmiä ja kukkia, se antaa lauluja ja unelmia,
se antaa meille tuhat suudelmaa, jotka kaikki ovat tyhjiä,
se antaa ainoan todellisen suudelman.
Se antaa meille omalaatuiset sielumme ja
kummalliset mieltymyksemme,
se antaa meille kaikki elämän parhaat edut:
rakkauden, yksinäisyyden ja kuoleman kasvot.

Skönhet / Frumusetea / Beauty

Vad är skönhet? Fråga alla själar –
skönhet är varje överflöd, varje glöd, varje överfyllnad och varje stort armod;
skönhet är att vara sommaren trogen och naken intill hösten;
skönhet är papegojans fjäderskrud eller solnedgången som bebådar storm;
skönhet är ett skarpt drag och ett eget tonfall: det är jag,
skönhet är en stor förlust och ett tigande sorgetåg,
skönhet är solfjäderns lätta slag som väcker ödets fläkt;
skönhet är att vara vällustig som rosen eller att förlåta allting för att solen skiner;
skönhet är korset munken valt eller pärlbandet damen får av sin älskare,
skönhet är icke den tunna såsen i vilken diktare servera sig själva,
skönhet är att föra krig och söka lycka,
skönhet är att tjäna högre makter.

Frumusetea

Ce-i frumusetea? Intreaba orice suflet-
frumusetea este fiece revarsare, fiece stralucire, fiece abundenta
si fiece saracie mare;
frumusetea este sa fii credincios verii si sa mergi goala spre toamna;
frumusetea este penajul unui papagal ori apusul ce prevesteste furtuni;
frumusetea este o trasatura accentuata si tonul personal : Eu sunt
frumusetea este o grea pierdere si o procesiune funerala tacuta,
frumusetea este usoara miscare a evantaiului care trezeste briza destinului:
frumusetea este sa fii voluptuoasa precum un trandafir
ori sa ierti totul pentru ca soarele sa straluceasca;
frumusetea este crucea aleasa de calugar ori margelele
pe care o doamna le are de la iubitul ei
frumusetea nu este sosul fin din care care poetii se servesc,
frumusetea este sa porti un razboi spre a cauta fericirea,
frumusetea este sa servesti puteri mai inalte
——————————————–
Beauty
What is beauty? Ask All Souls –
beauty is every abundance, every glow, every overflow
and every great poverty;
beauty is to be faithful to the summer and go naked to the fall;
beauty is the parrot’s spring thrust or the sunset that invokes storm;
beauty is a sharp feature and its own tone: I am,
beauty is a great loss and a silent funeral,
beauty is the light stroke of the fan that awakens the fate;
beauty is to be voluptuous as the rose or to forgive everything for the sun to shine;
beauty is the cross chosen by a monk or the beaded
a lady gets from her lover,
beauty is not the thin sauce in which poets serve themselves,
beauty is to wage war and seek happiness,
beauty is to serve higher powers.

Joskus / Candva / Sometimes

 

Joskus

tässä elämässä tai unessa

minä puhuin rakkaudesta.

Minä muistan runot, joissa

joku puhui rakkaudesta, minä tai joku toinen,

ja luuli, uskotteli itselleen, että rakkaus

on kauneuden sisar ja rakastavaiset

elävät suudelmista.

Minä en tiennyt,

tai joku toinen ei tiennyt,

että rakkaus on tuska,

joka polttaa sielun pois itseltään

jotta kahdesta tulisi yksi.

Perhonen

heittäytyy liekkiin ja palaa

tullakseen liekiksi itsekin,

yhtyy tuleen, sulautuu hurmioon.

Ei suudelma herätä henkiin

vaan surmaa.

Jaakko Hämeen Anttila
………………………………..

Candva

in viata asta sau in vis

eu am vorbit despre dragoste.

Imi amintesc poezii, in care

cineva vorbea despre dragoste, eu sau un altul,

si credea, se amagea, ca dragostea

este sora frumusetii si indragostitii

traiesc din sarutari.

Eu nu am stiut,

sau un altul nu a stiut

ca dragostea este durere,

care mistuie sufletul pân’ la capat

astfel incat din doi s-ar naste unu.

Fluturele

se arunca in flacara si arde

spre a deveni flacara el insusi,

se uneste cu focul, se topeste in extaz.

Sarutul nu trezeste la viata

ci ucide.
………………………………………………….

Sometimes

in this life, or in dream

I spoke about love.

I remember poems, in which

someone spoke about love, me or someone else,

and believed, deceived himself, that love

is the sister of beauty and the lovers

live from kisses.

I didn’t know, or someone else didn’t know,

that love is pain,

that burns the soul away from itself

So two become one.

The butterfly

throws itself in the flame and burns

to become itself a flame,

merges with the flame, melts in ecstasy.

The kiss doesn’t bring back to life

but it kills.

Rakkautta Helsingissä

Rakas,
mennään jonnekin missä
kukaan ei heittele meitä kuoleilla kaloilla.

Suudellaan kääpiötaatelipalmun katveessa
ja kerrostalojen katoilla.

Kaupunki avaa ovensa meille,
näyttää paikoja, joita me emme tunteneet,
joissa me olemme onnellisia.

Mennään siis sinne missä
kukaan ei heittele meitä kuoleilla kaloilla.

Iubite,
hai sa mergem undeva
unde nimeni nu arunca cu pesti morti in noi.

Sa ne sarutam la umbra curmalului
si pe acoperisurile blocurilor.

Orasul isi deschide usa pentru noi,
ne arata locuri, pe care nu le-am cunoscut,
unde suntem fericiti.

Sa mergem deci acolo unde
unde nimeni nu arunca cu pesti morti in noi.
……………………………..
Beloved,
let’s go there where
nobody throws dead fish at us.

Let’s kiss in the shade of the date palm
and on the roof of the flats.

The city opens its door to us,
shows us places which we didn’t know,
where we are happy.

so let’s go there
where nobody throws dead fish at us.

Tropiikin alla

 

Yhden kerran elämässä tuliruusu aukee
yhden yön se kukoistaa ja aamulla jo raukee
sill’ on syvä silmänluonti, kutsuva ja kuuma
sill’ on hehkuheteillänsä keskiöiden huuma

Sill’ on lehti verinen ja purppurainen huuli
sill’ on tuoksu huumava kuin kevätaron tuuli.
Taita tulikukkanen ja juo sen kuuma mesi
elä hetki, nauti hetki, kaadu paikallesi!

 

Hilja Onerva Lehtinen

 

At Tropics

Only once in a lifetime the fire-rose opens eyes
only for a night it blossoms and by morning dies
for one night it has a deep glance, calling through the fire
for one night its glowing stamens have midnight’s desire.

For one night a bloody petal and a purple lip,
its intoxicating fragrance, springtime’s windy steppe,
break away the burning flower, drink its essence fever
Live a moment, carpe diem and then die forever !

 

La Tropice

Un moment in asta viata roza de foc e in floare,
doar o noapte infloreste,pana dimineata moare;
isi deschide ochi adanci si chematori in soapte,
in stamine-are extazul miezului de noapte.

Are sangerie frunza, buze purpurii,
parfum orfic, vantul stepei verilor pustii.
Frange infocata floare, bea-i din trup esenta,
Fii si bucura-te-o clipa, uita-ti existenta!

Kevättä

Eräs on – on eräs – eräs on,
lahja liian rikas kohtalon,
eräs, jonka vuosi katu tää
rakas on ja rakkahaksi jää.

 

Viheriöi, oksa keväinen!
Viheriöi, pyydän, rukoilen!
Kuule: kasvat kadun varrella,
jota eräs saattaa kulkea.

 

Puhkee kukkiin, oksa vihreä!
Ilahutajoka sydäntä
kevättuoksuasi tulvien
mutta erästä, ah, eniten.

Primavara

Este unul – unul – numai unul.
Dar ce mi l-a dat Destinul bunul.
Unul, pentru care strada vaga
draga este, si ramane draga.

Inverzeste creanga-n primavara!
Te implor, te rog , fii verde iara!
Haide, cresti la margine de strada
poate “unul” meu o sa te vada!

Infloreste creanga verde cruda!
Fiecare inima surada.
Varsa crud miros de Primavara.
Pentru “unul” meu fii verde iara.

Maaliskuussa

Kuin itse aamu maaliskuun,
mi päilyi päällä hankein,
hän saapui säihkyss’ aamunsuun,
kun astuin mielin ankein.

 

Kujeili kutri vallaton,
kimalsi kuuran kiteet.
Siit’ asti sitonehet on
mua silkkihienot siteet.

 

Hän väikkyi luo, hän väikkyi pois,
kuin huomen hohtopilveen.
Käy vuodet, on kuin elo ois
vain väikett’ unten ilveen.

In Martie

 

Ca Martie in zori de zi,
lucind peste troiene,
venea-n lumina zilei vii,
cand sufeream alene.

 

Zulufii tâmplei tresareau,
lucea in lacrimi bruma,
fir de matase ne-a legat
de-atunci pe totdeauna.

 

Spre mine licarea, si iara
fugea ca dimineata-n nor.
Trecut-au anii, viata doara
e visul jocului de dor.

Nocturne

Ruislinnun laulu korvissani,
tähkäpäiden päällä täysi kuu;
kesä-yön on onni omanani,
kaskisavuun laaksot verhouu.
En ma iloitse, en sure, huokaa;
mutta metsän tummuus mulle tuokaa,
puunto pilven, johon päivä hukkuu,
siinto vaaran tuulisen, mi nukkuu,
tuoksut vanamon ja varjot veen;
niistä sydämeni laulun teen.

Miksi metsän tummuus sävelehen?
Kosk’ on mustaa murhe ylpeäin.
Miksi juova päivän laskenehen?
Koska monta nuorta unta näin.
Miksi etäisien vuorten siinto?
Koska sinne oli silmäin kiinto.
Miksi vanamoiden valjut lemut?
Koska päättyneet on päivän kemut.
Mutta miksi varjot virran veen?
Kosk’ on mieli mulla siimekseen.

Sulle laulan neiti, kesäheinä,
sydämeni suuri hiljaisuus,
uskontoni, soipa säveleinä,
tammenlehvä-seppel vehryt, uus.
En ma enää aja virvatulta,
onpa kädessäni onnen kulta;
pienentyy mun’ ympär’ elon piiri;
aika seisoo, nukkuu tuuliviiri;
edessäni hämäräinen tie
tuntemattomahan tupaan vie.

Nocturna

Cantul lisitei imi staruie-n auz,
luna plina peste spice arde;
fericit, in noaptea verii m-am ascuns,
fumul, peste vai, usor s-abate.
Vesel nu-s, nici trist, nu suspin inca;
vreau doar a padurii noape-adanca;
nor in care ziua se afunda,
zvon de vant ce-n somn dealul mi-l zvanta,
gust de floare si umbra de apa;
toate-n cantec inima-mi adapa.

De ce cantul meu e neguros?
E regretul negru al mandriei.
De ce ziua-mi are doar apus?
A murit a visului faclie.
De ce vad doar muntii, vag, in zare?
Tinta ochilor e-n departare.
De ce florile-mi duhnesc palite?
Caci si zilele imi sunt ciuntite.
De ce apa raului e sumbra?
Fiindca-n mintea mea totul e umbra,

Domnisoara, te descant in fanul verii,
tu, tacere din inima mea,
cu credinta cant in faptul serii,
tu, cununa de stejar verde si grea.
Nu mai caut flacari iluzorii,
strang in pumni aurul fericirii;
cercul vietii-n juru-mi se stramteaza
timpul sta, doarme morisca treaza;
inaintemi un drum intunecat
spre-o necunoscuta casa m-a-ndrumat.
