A romanian friend introduced me to this beautiful poem by Mihai Eminescu. (Here are two fragments, but i recommend you read the entire poem). The story is about the impossible love between immortal Evening Star and a beautiful mortal princess. Iar ea vorbind cu el în somn, Oftând din greu suspina: – O, dulce-al noptii mele Domn, De ce nu vii tu? Vina! Cobori în jos, luceafar blând, Alunecând pe-o raza, Patrunde-n casa si în gând Si viata-mi lumineaza! She speaks with him in sleep and sighs While her heart's swelled veins drum: -'O sweet Lord of my fairy nights, Why comest thou not? Come! Descend to me, mild Evening-star Thou canst glide on a beam, Enter my dwelling and my mind And over my life gleam!' (Translation by Petre Grimm) ................ 'O, cere-mi, Doamne, orice pret, Dar da-mi o alta soarte, Caci tu izvor esti de vieti Si datator de moarte; Reia-mi al nemuririi nimb Si focul din privire, Si pentru toate da-mi in schimb O ora de iubire'... '...Ask me, Lord, anything, but give Me fate of different breath, For you're the spring of lives to live, And giver are of death; Immortal nimbus overturn, From eyes remove the fire, But for all give me in return One hour of desire' ... (Translation by A. G. Sahlean)
