Worn Out
So, darling, I've come once again ...
Though can hardly, today, get about -
Open the piano and play me
A song of the dead.
George Bacovia (1881-1957)
Iubito, si iar am venit ...
Dar astazi, de-abia ma mai port -
Deschide clavirul si canta-mi
Un cantec de mort.
Si daca-am sa cad pe covoare
In tristul, tacutul salon, -
Tu canta nainte, iubito,
Incet, monoton.
And if I collapse on the carpets
In the drawing-room silent and gloom, -
You keep on playing, my darling,
Slowly, in monotone.
