„The Darkling Thrush” de Thomas Hardy

I leant upon a coppice gate
When Frost was spectre-grey,
And Winter’s dregs made desolate
The weakening eye of day.
The tangled bine-stems scored the sky
Like strings of broken lyres,
And all mankind that haunted nigh
Had sought their household fires.
Stam la o margine de crâng
Când Geru-i sur strigoi,
Şi drojdiile Iernii sting
Al zilei ochi vioi.
Suciţi, cârceii de hamei
Par frânte corzi de liră,
Şi-ntorşi acas’, vecinii mei
La vetre se-aciuiră.
The land’s sharp features seemed to be
The Century’s corpse outleant,
His crypt the cloudy canopy,
The wind his death-lament.
The ancient pulse of germ and birth
Was shrunken hard and dry,
And every spirit upon earth
Seemed fervourless as I.
Părea, colţos şi dur, pământul
Al Veacului leş… iar,
Sus, norii – cripta lui; şi vântul
Un vaier funerar.
Vechi plodul din sămânţa vie
Sfrijit şi sec părea,
Şi vlăguit, asemeni mie,
Tot ce mă-mpresura.
At once a voice arose among
The bleak twigs overhead
In a full-hearted evensong
Of joy illimited;
An aged thrush, frail, gaunt and small,
In blast-beruffled plume,
Had chosen thus to fling his soul
Upon the growing gloom.
Deodat’ un tril zbucnise prin
Uscate crengi, de sus,
Un cânt de voie-bună plin
Şi de avânt nespus;
Un schilav sturz, bătrân, plăpând
Şi cu penet zburlit,
În întunericul crescând
Cu foc ap piruit.
So little cause for carolings
Of such ecstatic sound
Was written on terrestrial things
Afar or nigh around,
That I could think there trembled through
His happy good-night air
Some blessed Hope, whereof he knew
And I was unaware.
Aşa puţin temei anume
Pentru-acest imn-colind
Sta scris pe tot ce e pe lume
Cât zările cuprind,
Încât mi-am zis că vreun fior
Vibra în melodie,
De noi nădejdi lui vestitor
Şi neştiute mie.
Thomas Hardy traducere de Leon Leviţchi
