The Old Men
William Carlos WILLIAMS

Old men who have studied
every leg show
in the city
Old men cut from touch
by the perfumed music—
polished or fleeced skulls
that stand before
the whole theater
in silent attitudes
of attention,—

Bătrânii care au văzut
fiacare cabaret
din oraş
Bătrânii trăind în altă lume
în parfumul muzicii –
având chelia bine lustruită
aşezati în rândul întâi
al teatrului
cu atenţia calmă
şi tăcută,

Poetry in Translation (CXXXVI): Edith SITWELL (1887-1964) – “Answers”, “Răspunsuri”

Edith SITWELL (1887-1964) – “Answers”, “Răspunsuri”

I kept my answers small and kept them near;
Big questions bruised my mind but still I let
Small answers be a bulwark to my fear.

Răspunsuri mici păstrez mereu discret
Ca să nu-nfrunte grijile prea mari
Deşi răspunsuri mici răman în piept.
