Cartof nou – New batata – Patate nouvelle

Despre natura sufletului

roumanie

Cartof nou

Nopţile golite de sânge,
albe ca nişte crini,

la capătul fiecărui drum,
ascunse, odihnitoare.

Prin uliţi înalte de piatră
subsolurile oraşului se varsă-n cer
în timp ce cocoşul
îşi leapădă penele a treia oară
lângă luna ca un cartof nou.

New batata

Blood-emptied nights –
white like lilies –

at the end of every way
hidden, restful they are.

Through the high stone lanes
the basements of the city are flowing into the sky
while the cock is sheding its feathers
for the third time
by the moon
like a new batata.

Patate nouvelle

Nuits vidées de sang
blanches comme des lys,

au bout de chaque chemin,
cachées, reposantes.

Par de hautes ruelles de pierre
les sous sols de la ville se déversent dans le ciel
tandis que le coq
se débarrasse de ses plumes pour la troisième fois
près de la lune comme une patate nouvelle
