Transilvania, Romania, 2008

“Daca nu sunteti vanatori si pescari puneti mana pe toiag si colindati mostenirea aceasta fara pereche. Nicaieri in lume nu sunt locuri mai frumoase, n-am spus ca avem cele mai alese frumuseti din lume, ci ca si aici sunt privelisti tot asa de frumoase ca cele mai laudate de aiurea. Cel care vede Delta intelege singuratatile Africii. Cel care suie in Calimani ori Retezatu, ori Ceahlau a trecut in zona fara de prihana a altei lumi.
Cei care sunteti vanatori sau pescari n-aveti nevoie de indemnul meu ca sa iesiti in mijlocul naturii. Dupa ani de rataciri si practica, vad ca imi mai raman totusi destule, necunoscute, si va indemn pe cei de la campie sa va suiti la munte, sa ascultati cerbul la inceputul toamnei, iar pe tovarasii vanatori din munte ii sfatuiesc sa incerce farmecul unei zile cu luntrea in singuratatile pruteturilor ori dunaritelor.”

Mihail Sadoveanu

Amurg de iarna

Winter Dusk – by George Bacovia

Sombre and metallic, dusk in winter,
The white plain – vast and round –
A raven comes rowing from the background,
Cutting the skyline at the diameter.

Occasional trees like crystal in their snow.
Longings for disappearance sip at me,
While the same raven goes back silently,
Cutting the skyline at the diameter.

Translation from : http://www.aboutromania.com/bacovia20.html

Amurg de iarna, sumbru, de metal,
Campia alba – un imens rotund –
Vaslind, un corb incet vine din fund,
Taind orizontul, diametral.

Copacii rari si ninsi par de cristal.
Chemari de disparitie ma sorb,
Pe cand, tacut, se-ntoarce-acelasi corb,
Taind orizontul, diametral.
