0 REMAIN DEAR ONE...

Written by: Mihai Eminescu | Biography
"O remain, dear one, I love you, 
Stay with me in my fair land, 
For your dreamings and longings 
Only I can understand.
You, who like a prince reclining O'er the pool with heaven starred; You who gaze up from the water With such earnest deep regard.
Stay, for where the lapping wavelets Shake the tall and tasseled grass, I will make you hear in secret How the furtive chamois pass.
Oh, I see you wrapped in magic, Hear your murmur low and sweet, As you break the shallow water With your slender naked feet; See you thus amidst the ripples Which the moon's pale beams engage, And your years seem but an instant, And each instant seems an age.
" Thus spake the woods in soft entreaty; Arching boughs above me bent, But I whistled high, and laughing Out into the open went.
Now though e'en I roamed that country How could I its charm recall.
.
.
Where has boyhood gone, I wonder, With its pool and woods and all? ---------- English version by Corneliu M.
