TO MY BELOVED MADAME AGNES ROLING, MAY SHE REST IN PEACE…

De Profundis

Inca un an, o zi, un ceas –
si drumuri toate s-au retras
de sub picioare, de sub pas.
inca un an si-un vis si-un somn

si-oi fi pe sub pamanturi domn

al oaselor ce drepte dorm.

 

Lucian Blaga ( Blessed Eternity, Poet born under the sign of silence…)
……………………………………..
De Profundis

Another year, and day, and hour
and all the roads retreat their power
from under feet and the step’s bower.
Another year, and dream, and kip
and I’ll be King under lands deep
of all the bones in righteous sleep.

English version, Maria Magdalena Biela
