Otherwise
The man started talking by himself ...
And everything moved in the passing shadows -
A sky of lead ruled everlastingly,
And the brain was burning like the sun's furnace.
1881-1957
George Bacovia (1881-1957)
Altfel
Omul incepuse sa vorbeasca singur ...
Si totul se misca in umbre trecatoare -
Un cer de plumb de-a pururea domnea,
Iar creierul ardea ca flacara de soare.
Nimic. Pustiul tot mai larg parea ...
Si-n noaptea lui amara tacuse orice cant -
Si-nvinetit de ganduri, cu fruntea in pamant,
Omul incepuse sa vorbeasca singur ...
Nothing. The solitude seemed ever wider ...
And in its bitter night all songs were silent -
And livid with his thoughts, his forehead bent,
The man started talking by himself ...
