At the Altar
Pointessly the cathedral stands
In sophisticated times, today -
Just a few lovers with ruined
Souls come here to rave.
George Bacovia (1881-1957)
In Altar
Sta fara noima catedrala
Azi, intr-un secol rafinat -
Doar de mai vin sa delireze
Amanti cu suflet ruinat.
... Si delirand, cand corul curge
Se face gandul mai amar -
Ei vor o noapte de orgie
Pe canapeaua din altar ...
... And raving, while the choir's in flight
This thought grows more bitter -
They want an orgiastic night
On the bed at the altar ...
