Poem by Mihai Eminescu (Romanian)


Hello everyone, how are you? Today I would
like to share with you one of Mihai Eminescu’s poems. I have a book that is a bilingual Romanian
and English edition. From this edition I’d like to read for you a poem called Singurătate.
In my room with lowered curtains, at my rugged desk I sit, and the glow of dying embers,
brings on me a thinking fit. Swarms and flocks of sweet illusions cross my mind. Above them
all memories like grigs are chirping, in some cracked and darkened wall; Or fall heavily
through sooting, crushing sadly on my mood, like the tapers slowly dripping, at the feet
of Jesus’ Rood. In the corner of my chamber, cobwebs are my only wealth, and among the
piles of volumes, mice run to and fro by stealth. In the sweetness of this quiet, To the lamp
I raise my looks, and I listen to their gnawing, at the covers of my books. Oh, how often have
I wanted, from my lute away to break: Thus the poetry enchanted, and the wasteland to
foresake; Then however, mice and crickets, lightly stepping all the time, bring me back
my melancholy, which soon changes into rhyme. When at moments, none too often, while the
candle says it’s late, my expectant heart is startled, if some hand unbolts the gate.
It is SHE. The empty cottage, all at once seems full and bright; In my life’s dark window
framing, she’s an icon of pure light. And I only rue that minutes, ruthlessly are flying
past, when I sit with my love cooing, hands and mouths pressed close and fast. So, that’s
all for the moment. I hope you liked the poem. We’ll see each other soon, right? Until next
time!
