Scenery

decor

White trees, black tress

Are naked in the solitary park;

Mourning scenery, dark…

White trees, black trees.

.

Regrets crying in the park… 

 

With white feathers, black feathers

A bird tweets sourly in the dark

And flies through the secular park…

With white feathers, black feathers.

 

Ghosts appear in the park…

 

And white leaves, black leaves;

White trees, black trees;

And white feathers, black feathers,

Mourning scenery, dark…

 

It’s snowing slowly in the park… 

George Bacovia, Decor

translated from Romanian by Marcel Rus
