The Words

heavy-rain

The words never cry

Though, corolla, gather in them

All the pain of the world.

 

The words never laugh

Though in them enjoy

All the gladness of the earth.

 

Dutiful and wise words

Never laugh and cry

Though in them

Happiness and sadness of the world

Are intertwined.

Mircea M. Pop, Cuvintele

translated from Romanian by Marcel Rus
