Ții Minte Focul... / Do You Recall The Fire...

Ții minte focul, chinul, primăvara,
Tot viscolul aprins ce bântuise?
El ne adunase, el ne învrăjbise,
El ne mâna, învolburându-și para.

Dar de pe-atunci, când nu se potolise
Furtuna vârstei, cea dintâi, amara,
Când tinereții-i mai duceam povară,
Noi încă ne uneam prin alte vise.

Și dacă azi nimic nu ne desface,
Și trecem în deplina-mbrățișare,
E că-mpreună nu aflarăm pace,

Ci căutarăm focu-ncins în zare,
Și rostul lumii care se preface,
Și-al nostru, celor trecători sub soare.

Maria Banus

Do you recall the fire...

Do you recall the fire, the torment, the spring,
All kindled blizzard haunting us with blame
It put together us, also discord to bring
It drove us, swirling its flame.

Since then, when yet it did not subside
The storm of age, the first and bitter one
When yet we were carrying the youth tide
We still were one in all that dreams begun.

And if today nothing can break us ever,
And we could go into the full embrace,
It's because we didn't find peace together,

But we sought fire in the horizon's lace,
The purpose of the changing world forever,
And ours, those passing under sun's pace.

English version, Maria Magdalena Biela
