happy birthday is just happy birthday...

it does not mean, like in Romanian language, "to live a long life". It mean only to be happy when celebrating your birth.

 

.

maybe the Romanian language keep inside its "la multi ani" a little bit of fear .

no one will find that funny too, I hope. they adore Elvis.

about Eminescu :)

 

I like the owner of this blog used one of our colored pictures:

but he should tell that Mihai had dark brown eyes, not blue

 

 

....15 June is coming...:sad:

15 June... another important , but sad day...

tomorrow, is the day of his death...

 

:rip: 120 years since then

 

 

 

Ode (in ancient meter) - by Mihai Eminescu

 

Hardly had I thought I should learn to perish;

Ever young, enwrapped in my robe I wandered,

Raising dreamy eyes to the star styled often

Solitude's symbol.

 

All at once, however, you crossed my pathway -

Suffering - you, painfully sweet, yet torture...

To the lees I drank the delight of dying -

Pitiless torment.

 

Sadly racked, I'm burning alive like Nessus,

Or like Hercules by his garment poisoned;

Nor can I extinguish my flames with every

Billow of oceans.

 

By my own illusion consumed I'm wailing

On my own grim pyre in flames I'm melting...

Can I hope to rise again like the Phoenix

Bird from the ashes?

 

May all tempting eyes vanish from my pathway

Come back to my breast, you indifferent sorrow!

So that I may quietly die, restore me

To my own being!

 

(1883, Translated by Andrei Bantas)

That's a beautiful poem, but very sad...

 

Rest in peace Mihai!
