“Hope” is the thing with feathers – / “Speranta”-i ceva cu pene –

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –

And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –

I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.

Emily Dickinson

“Speranta”-i ceva cu pene –
“Speranta”-i ceva cu pene –
Ce-n suflet e-ncuibata –
Si fredoneaza-o melodie –
Far-a se-opri vreodata –
Dulce-n – Vant tare – se-aude –
Si-amar-o fi furtuna –
Ce umileste-un Cant ce-n trude
Ferici multi intruna –
L-auzii pe-un rece pamant
Si pe-o Mare straina –
Dar orisicat a suferit
Nu mi-a cerut farama.


Maria Magdalena
