Cântec în doi / Song for two

Şi vine toamna iar
ca dup-un psalm aminul.
Doi suntem gata să gustăm
cu miere-amestecat veninul.

Doi suntem gata s-ajutăm
brinduşile ardorii
să înflorească iar în noi
şi-n toamna-aceasta de apoi.

Doi suntem, când cu umbra lor
ne împresoară-n lume norii.
Ce gânduri are soarele cu noi —
nu stim, dar suntem doi.

Lucian Blaga


Song for two

And Autumn comes again
as after psalm the amen.
We’re both ready to taste
with honey-mixed the venom.

We’re both ready to help
the crocus of the ardor
to flourish again in us
and in this old fall thus.

We are two, when with their shadow
the clouds surround us in the world.
What thoughts does the sun have with us –
we don’t know, but there’s two of us.

Translated by Maria Magdalena Biela
