Zi de toamna - Autumn day

Cine acum nu are casă, nu-şi mai face.
Cine acum e singur, va rămânea-ndelung.
O să vegheze, va ceti, scrisori va scrie lungi
şi pe alei va rătăci acolo şi încoace
pierdut, când frunzele se-ndungă şi cad foşning prelung.

(Rainer Maria Rilke, Zi de toamnă, fragment)

Whoever has no house now will not build one anymore.
Whoever is alone now will remain so for a long time,
will stay up, read, write long letters, and wander the avenues,
up and down, restlessly, while the leaves are blowing.

(Rainer Maria Rilke, Autumn day, fragment. Translated by Galway Kinnell and Hannah Liebmann, “The Essential Rilke”)
