Poetry in Translation (CCCXLIII), Rainer Maria RILKE (1875, Prague – 1926, Montreux), CZECHIA/AUSTRIA: “You Who Never Arrived ”, “Tu care n-ai ajuns niciodată”

July 5th, 2015 · No Comments · Books, Famous People, Poetry, quotations, Translations

You who never arrived
in my arms, Beloved, who were lost
from the start,
I don’t even know what songs
would please you.
Tu care n-ai ajuns niciodată
în braţele mele, Iubito, ce te-am pierdut
dela-nceput,
nici nu mai ştiu ce odă
ţi-ar fi plăcut.

Poetry in Translation (CCCXXIX), Constantin ROMAN, GREAT BRITAIN/ENGLAND: “Chelsea Bridge” (Romanian version)

March 21st, 2015 · No Comments · Books, Diaspora, Famous People, OPINION, PEOPLE, Poetry, quotations, Translations

ne vom înşira amintirile în faţa focului, până seara târziu
ca să înfruntăm viscolul
ţinând piept furtunii
amândoi fiind
pustiiţi de vechile
visuri inimaginabile
de sentimente nemărturisite
în cătuşele trecutului nostru
ca să ne despărţim cu acelaşi zâmbet complice
conform scenariului dinainte stabilit
bine pus la punct
până la urmatoarea întâlnire ilicită
care poate nu va mai avea rost
niciodată.

Now I shall seek endlessly
the streets where we walked together
I will drag along my fading dreams

Poetry in Translation (CCXXIII): ANONYMOUS, BRITISH Poet, “Lament”

November 15th, 2013 · No Comments · Diaspora, International Media, PEOPLE, Poetry, quotations

LAMENT

Gone are the hopes
In morning’s mist,
Unfolding
London’s spell,
In all my dreams.
Of days gone bye,
Am longing
More and more…
Of our trysts
Do hope, in vain,
In one more night
Of love!

(Chelsea, November 16)

Poetry in Translation (CCXXI): Anonymous, British Author, “Follow Your Path”

November 10th, 2013 · No Comments · Diaspora, International Media, PEOPLE, Poetry, quotations, Translations

To G.A.
Follow Your Path

Please, just follow your path,
In these sorrowful moments,
Which are, often, so brittle.
Yet, reflect our Love!

For I hope you will worship
Our wonderful longings,
Though we live in the Present,
Just to steal passing Dreams.

Whilst you’ll reach newer Havens,
Leaving the Past behind you,
I shall still be your beacon
Lighting your Road ahead!

As I’ll shepherd your Yearnings,
Striving for new Horizons,
I shall beg now to snuffle
All I cherished in you!
