Poetry in Translation (CCCLV), Tadeusz ROZEWICZ (1921-2014), POLAND: “Supravieţuitorul”, “The Survivor”

September 7th, 2015 · No Comments · Famous People, International Media, Poetry, quotations, Translations

Tata aţipeşte la gura sobei,
după o săptămână de muncă.

Sigur – nu i-aşi putea mărturisi
că aici oamenii
îşi pun ştreangul la gât, unii altora?

Father dozes by the stove
after six days’ labour.

No–surely I can’t tell them
that people are at each
other’s throats.

POETRY IN TRANSLATION (CCCXXXVII), Tadeusz RòZEWICZ (1921– 2014), POLAND: “Supravieţuitorul”, “The Survivor”

June 13th, 2015 · No Comments · Famous People, PEOPLE, Poetry, quotations, Translations

Virtue and crime weigh the same
I’ve seen it:
in a man who was both
criminal and virtuous.

I seek a teacher and a master
may he restore my sight hearing and speech
may he again name objects and ideas
may he separate darkness from light.

I am twenty-four
led to slaughter
I survived.
rumuseţe şi sluţenie
curaj şi laşitate
toate cântăresc de-opotrivă
am văzut-o
la un om care era de o potrivă
criminal şi virtuos.

Caut un dascăl şi un îndrumător
ca să-mi redea văzul auzul şi graiul
ca să pot desluşi obiectele şi ideile
să pot distinge întunericul de lumină.

Am ani două zeci şi patru
fiind mânat la abator
am supravieţuit.

Then, we will go out into the winter storm
To walk against the wind,
As we always do, as we did before,
Then we part – happily, just with a smile,
Till the next rendezvous – after quite a while.

Poetry in Translation, (CCLXXIX) – POLAND, Wislawa SZYMBORSKA (1923-2012): “Possibilities”, “Posibilităţi”

Prefer zodia insectelor decât cea a stelelor.
Prefer să bat în lemn.
Prefer să întreb cât timp şi când.
Prefer să consider că însăşi posibilitatea
existenţei îşi are raţiunea sa.

November 7th, 2013 · No Comments · Diaspora, Genealogy, Genealogy, PEOPLE

King Mihai de Romania and Anne Princess of Denmark and of Bourbon-Parme[/caption] Anne de Bourbon-Parme, Queen of Romania, is a descendant of Jeremy Movila, Voyevode of Moldavia, via Maria Leczynska Queen of Louis XV of France and through their descendants to the Bourbon-Parme branch of the French and Danish Royal Families.
Prince Ieremia Movila was a great patron of the arts and founder of the painted monasteries of Bucovina. During his reign the Principality of Moldavia experienced a Rennaissance of its decorative arts, especially the post-Byzantine religious embroideries.
Pornind pe linie directa ascendenta a familiei de Bourbon-Parma, deci pe linie barbateasca, ajungem la Ferdinand I de Bourbon, Duce de Parma (1751-1802) nepotul Lui Filip V regele Spaniei si Duce de Anjou (1683, Versailles – 1746 Madrid).
Acest Ferdinand I Infante de Spania (1751-1802), care preceda cu sase generatii pe Ana de Bourbon-Parma a noastra [sper si a domniei tale] era casatorit cu printesa Louise Elisabeth de France (1727-1759), fiica lui Ludovic al XV regele Frantei si a sotiei lui Maria Leczynska, (1703-1768) regina Frantei, care, la randul ei, era fiica lui Stanislas Lesczynski regele Poloniei si Duce de Lorena (1677-1766).
