Lonely

EQUINOX

winter_nightj

Ravage, white crystal stars fall,

And it snows in the sinful night;

In the hearth flames barely alight, –

Today my final dream died in all.

At midnight it snows glacial…

Again you tremble, lonely soul,

On hearth in the weak flames roll

And slowly fall pink tears, of crystal.

George Bacovia, Singur

translated from Romanian by Marcel Rus

So Close to Infinity

EQUINOX

inferno

It’s the time the forests burn

And the inflamed heaven

Lights the earth

In the natural event of genesis.

The colours disappear slowly

In the dance of live fire.

Now I’m close

to infinity and

to death.

The dizzying vortex gives me

Only a landmark

To take me,

To bring me back ?…

I ! I myself if I could

Understand this mystery

Before even destroying it

By looking at it.

Ecaterina Staicu, Aproape sunt de infinit

translated from Romanian by Marcel Rus
