Seldom

rar

Alone, alone, alone,

In an inn, away –

Also the host sleeps,

Empty streets stay,

Alone, alone, alone.

 

Raining, raining, raining…

Weather to get drunk –

And listen to the wilderness,

In melacholy I’ve sunk !

Raining, raining, raining…

 

Nobody, nobody, nobody…

All the better –

Far so long

I haven’t got a letter, –

Nobody, nobody, nobody…

 

Shake, shake, shake…

Ironies that hate

Will remain yours –

The night is late,

Shake, shake, shake…

.

Endless, endless, endless…

Wasting from now on, fast

Won’t call me again –

Dreams covered by dust,

Endless, endless, endless…

 

Alone, alone, alone…

Weather to get drunk –

Listen how it’s raining,

In melancholy I’ve sunk !

Alone, alone, alone…

George Bacovia, Rar

translated from Romanian by Marcel Rus
