Autumn and winter
Descend at once;
It rains and snows -
Snows, and rains.
1881-1957
George Bacovia (1881-1957)
Moina
Si toamna, si iarna
Coboara-amandoua;
Si ploua, si ninge, -
Si ninge, si ploua.
Si noaptea se lasa
Murdara si goala;
Si galbeni trec bolnavi
Copii de la scoala.
Filthy and empty
Down comes the dark;
School-children pass
Yellow and sick.
And the walls are damp,
And a chill takes me over -
To those in graves
A thought bring me closer ...
Si-s umezi peretii,
Si-un frig ma cuprinde -
Cu cei din morminte
Un gand ma deprinde ...
Si toamna, si iarna
Coboara-amandoua;
Si ploua, si ninge, -
Si ninge, si ploua.
Autumn and winter
Descend at once;
It rains and snows -
Snows, and rains.
