Farewell

autumn

Farewell, the leaf is falling

And is yellow like you, –

Stay, and don’t cry too,

And forget me, darling.

 

And darling had leaving

And vanished far

Away, like a falling star,

And madly I was calling…

 

“Stay a while and caress me

With your little hand,

Why it’s autumn at the end

And why the leaf falls, tell me…”

George Bacovia, Adio

translated from Romanian by Marcel Rus
