A poem translated into Romanian

talesforlove

Dear Friends,

Today we share a poem translated into Romanian, at the Review Monitorul de poezie (Romania; A n u l 3 , n u m ă r u l 3 7 , n o i e m b r i e 2 0 2 1).

 

Tăcere, Carlton Holte (SUA)


Poate când ești pe apă,
înconjurat de bărci cu motor și jet-ski-uri,
nu are rost să te gândeşti la calm,
la o după-amiază liniștită, să fii treaz fără nelinişti.
Pe micul nostru iaz, totuşi,
tăcerea este ceva obişnuit,
deși noul nostru caiac –
turnat dintr-un plastic dur verde-lime –
se ciocnește cu fiecare vestă de salvare,
înfruntă albastrul lacului
de fiecare dată când îl lansez.
Iau cu mine un creion și o bucată de hârtie,
vâslesc încet în afara golfului,
apoi ascult cu atenție, în timp ce plutesc în derivă,
tăcerea ca o creangă căzută sau ca o broască țestoasă curioasă,
până încep să aud dictarea
și sunt binecuvântat cu misiunea

unui secretar care înregistrează
înțelepciunea fără vârstă
purtată de briză peste ape.

Traducere de Ionuţ Calotă

 

The original here, is in the Anthology Nature 2015/21.

 

Stillness

 

Perhaps when you are on water
assaulted by speedboats and jet-skis,
there is little point in hoping for tranquility,
for a quiet afternoon, awake with no wakes.
On our little pond, however,
stillness is the norm,
though our new kayak–
loud lime-green molded plastic–
clashes with every life jacket,
affronts the blue of the lake
each time I launch it.
I bring a pencil and a scrap of paper,
paddle slowly out of the cove,
then listen carefully while I drift
silent as a fallen branch or curious turtle
until the dictation begins
and I am blessed with the job
of recording secretary
for the ageless wisdom
wafted across the water by the breeze.

 

The first Anthologies were sent. They will arrive in about 20 working days if sent to out of the EU and about 7 working days in the EU.

Enjoy.

Tomorrow? Poetry by Liselle P.

talesforlove

Dear Friends.

We are waiting for the arrival of the printed Anthologies and we hope this happens tomorow but Christmas and Covid-19 might delay the very expected moment.

While we wait here a poem by Liselle P.

 

They are Coming

 

Hear their hooves of the horses on the dirt path road coming to chase us.

What did we do wrong? The cries of children echo.

Mothers, Fathers RUN!!! RUN!!! RUN!!!

Don’t let them get us, we belong here just like everyone else.

Lives were built here. Children were born here.

This is all we know, we had to flee the hardship,

The pain and suffering. We ran, we left home,

and never looked back.

Took the chance didn’t have any status,

because we wanted to taste America. This is the

land of dreams and opportunities.

Just like milk and honey.

Are you mad at us because we want to live better?

How dare you judge us? Go back in your memory and think

for a second, when you wanted to breath fresh air,

and live a decent life.

Go back in your memory and think when you got turned down.

Just go back, and let the tears flow because you remembered.

But look what is happening now. You rush down here

to bully us and abuse us to get out?

FATHER!!! HELP US!!!! hear our cries, only god can see the evil of men.

They drag us up like filth and speak to us like we are dumb

They sending us back to torture. Back to hard life and poverty.

Don’t want to go, don’t want to go.

Can someone hear our plight? OH GOD NOOOO!!!

Save us please. The enemy is coming. IS COMING!!!!!!

 

Enjoy.
