Legend

harp

When anything is sold,

When everything is merchandise –

Awakens an old sound

From the ancient harp.

 

From the goblets, wine of oblivion,

Let it be the scarf of virtue –

Awakens an old sound

From the ancient harp.

George Bacovia, Legenda

translated from Romanian by Marcel Rus
