Poetry in Translation (CXCIII): Taras SHEVCHENKO, Ukrainian Poet, Painter, (1814 – 1861), “My Testament”, “Limbă de moarte”

Bury me and arise, break your chains
And sprinkle your freedom
With the enemy’s evil blood.
And don’t forget to remember me
In the great family,
In a family new and free,
With a kind and quiet word.

Ingroapă-mă, dar scoăla-te, rupe lanţurile
Şi răcoreşte-ţi libertatea
Cu sângele otrăvit al duşmanului.
Dar nu uita să mă pomeneşti
Cu un cuvânt bun, liniştit,
Întregului neam,
Un neam renăscut şi liber,
Rendered in Romanian by Constantin ROMAN, London,
