Today 15.January 2014 , we celebrate 164 years of the birth of poet who was  called : " Lucifer or Romanian Evening Star"


    TO THE STAR 

So far it is athwart the blue  
To where yon star appears,  
That for its light to reach our view  
Has needed thousand years. 

Maybe that ages gone it shed  
Its glow, then languished in the skies,  
Yet only now its rays have sped  
Their journey to our eyes. 

The icon of the star that died  
Slowly the vault ascended;  
Time was ere it could first be spied,  
We see now what is ended. 

So is it when our love's aspire   
Is hid beneath night's bowl,  
The gleam of its extinguished fire  
Enkindles yet our soul. 

English version by Corneliu M. Popescu

Wow... The Romanian language is very different from Spanish (even if both are romance languages). I'm studying Italian, and even Spanish and Italian are closer to each other than Spanish and Romanian. Yes, I know, of course every language is different, but in this case the difference is HUGE even if both came from Latin.

Unfortunately, where I live we cannot find enough information about Romanian literature... I cannot even find a decent Spanish translation of this poem...
