How Many a Time, Beloved… – M. Eminescu

How many a time, beloved, no longer do I know,

There seems to spread before me a sea of ice and snow;

And not a single star does in the heaven shine,

Only the yellow moon quite far away… a sign.

While o’er the drifted waste of frozen ocean there

A bird with weary wings hangs in the winter air.

Its mate has gone ahead, and left it all alone,

Together with a flock that to the west has flown.

And so it gazes after, with tired, straining eyes,

But is no longer sorry now, nor glad… and dies,

While do its parting dreams the happy past pursue.

…………………………………………………………………..

Day by day I’m farther, beloved one, from you,

And slowly, cold and darkness do take me for their prey…

While you fly on for ever, midst time’s eternal day.

translated by Corneliu M. Popescu
