Intre cer si pamant
Suntem noi oamenii,
Intre mne si tine
Stau insirate cuvintele,
Incerc sa-ti transmit sentimente…
In cuvinte potrivite…
Dar nu reusesc
Caci neincetat se amesteca
Cuvintele ce stau insirate
Intre noi doi.
Between Sky and Earth,
We are people,
Between me and you
Words stay string out,
I am trying to send you feelings…
In the right words..
But I dont succeed
Cause ceaselessly combine
The words that stay string out
Between us two.
Ana Blandiana – We should be born old
“We should be born old,
To come wise,
To be able to decide our fate in the world,
To know from the primary crossroad what roads start
and irresponsible to be just the longing to go.
Then to make ourselves younger, younger, going,
Mature and powerful we should come to the gate of creation,
Passing trough it and in love falling as teenagers,
To be children at the birth of our children.
However they would then be older than us,
They would learn us to speak, they would swing us to sleep,
We will disappear more and more, becoming smaller,
As the grain of grape, as the grain of pea, as the grain of wheat …”
