O, poetry, refined, divine [Frumoasă sfântă poezie]

O, poetry, refined, divine,
Which were my God, my only goal,
Your pleasurable vain design
How much was cherished by my soul!

When I grew up like any child
You were my idol from the start,
I was dynamic, I was wild,
And I adored your subtle art.

Then, for my piety was deep
And your myth wanted to pursue,
Although you were so vain and cheap
I sacrificed my soul to you.

Jesus on my cell

Last night Jesus entered my cell.
Oh, how sad was Christ, how tall!
The moon entered after him the cell,
and made Him taller and sadder, I recall.

His hands were like lilies on graves,
Eyes as deep as forests' lands,
The moon threw silver on his garments in waves,
silvering His big, pierced hands.

I got up from under the old, gray blanket of mine:
- God, where do you come from? From what age, tell me, please?
Jesus gently put a finger to His mouth as a sign,
motioned for me to be quiet and at ease...

He sat next to me on the mat full of dust...
- Put your hand on my wounds, on my veins,
On his ankles were shadows of wounds and rust,
It was as if he had once worn chains...

Shall I Wait Till I Understand Pablo Neruda

Perchance I happened to meet
One editor of a newspaper big
In conversation I told him
About my interest in writing
In Odia and in English do I write
And conveyed my wish
To get them published.

Asked he me some questions
To gauge my knowledge depth
Ma'm! Have you read
Jayanta Mohapatra and Pablo Neruda?

I am a casual writer
Not a person who has read much
Limited is my knowledge in literature
Yes, Great Poems one or two I have read
From Jayanta Mohapatra and Pablo Neruda
To be frank
I could not fully comprehend

On the skies {Pe ceruri]

On the skies moon climbs anew
To its light I raise my brow
And my thought is tracing you
On the road where you are now.

You're a vagrant, it goes by
Like the life and worldly things,
To this earth few moments tie
Our short love with dainty strings.

You, this moon so proud and cool,
How I'd like to stop, my friend,
And enraptured, like a fool,
To behold you years on end.

Don't cry [Nu plânge]

Don't cry for I deny your face,
And that I leave you do not cry...
The time has come to change my place,
The time has come to say goodbye.

A chain is breaking, which was strong,
As if a thread were teared by force;
When fate seems terrible and wrong,
In vain you try to change its course.

And nothing in the world around
Can bring us back what was before
And the sweet love, true and profound,
That we two shared in days of yore.

Goodbye, you'll be alright, I know,
Your soul will fly like a white dove...
New lovers come when old flames go
And you'll forget my fervent love.

Tears and tears [Lcrime şi lacrime]

Stop your crying, curb your fears,
Heart unlucky and profane,
Through your big and bloody tears
Never heals or disappears
My deep wound and my great pain.

Pain that's burning like a flame
In my chest, but without smoke,
Where the sorrow quickly came,
Dripping bitter gall and shame,
On my neck to put a yoke.

Ah! And keep this in your mind
That the flame which spoils my glee
Through some vows sincere and kind
A tear burning and refined
Of sweet love has lit in me.

You were my dear [Drag mi-ai fost]

Once you were, you were my dear,
But today I've grown aware
That this world so large and old
Without you it isn't bare.

In the sky, the morning star
Glows and fills us with much fun,
But goes down and fades away
When at dawn appears the sun.

Its majestic fiery disk
Makes you feel a newly born
And erases from your mind
The star twinkling in the morn.

Morning star you were to me,
Which at dawn my eyes did meet,
Then you waned – so now I look
At the sun, which is so sweet...

Watching a portrait [La un portret]

I lose myself when watch your face
As if in holy joy I melt,
And in my soul returns with grace
The longing that on earth I felt.

And with a love complete and great
Your portrait gently I caress,
And I forget our feud and hate,
And I forget my sore distress.

I love you as I did before
With thoughts majestic and refined,
And with that feeling sweet of yore,
Which from the past comes back to mind.

To X [Lui X]

Wow! The pyramid's grand apex my poor eye can hardly trace...
Standing by this stone colossus I look tiny and resigned,
But you in whose mind the cosmos sees its mirrored holy face,
Will stay here for many ages through your genius so refined.

And you wish my love, my comfort... I would like my love to swell,
To connect our lots for ever is the goal that I have planned;
Yes, but how, when I am petty and I know it very well,
When your great and famous being I can barely understand?

In the world your genius hovers! Leave me prey to my own fate
Every now and then to watch you even though we are apart
Just to witness all your glory till I reach the death's grim gate
And in secret to adore you, my dear wonder, in my heart.
