Avenues spread in the summer night,
Electric light on the trees -
An engine throbs at the railway station
And in the void, the signals shiver.
George Bacovia (1881-1957)
Se-ntind bulevarde-n noapte de vara,
Pe arbori electrica lumina -
La gara zvacneste o masina,
Si-n gol tresar signale de gara.
Pe cer de safir, comori de avari ...
Tacerea in gol vibreaza cu zvon
Orasul, cu-ncetul pare-un salon,
Acuma, in somn, tresar fete mari.
A miser's wealth on a sapphire sky ...
Silence vibrates in the void with a hum, -
The town slowly looks like drawing-room,
Now in their sleep the young maids quiver.
