The joys

Trilingual text: English, Italian and Romanian language

A sparrow was dozing on the windowsill…
On the first ray of sun has jumped, thinking it’s a twig
The cat of my neighbor was playing, seemingly careless, with the golden skein on the sky
I opened the window, slamming it without intention, from the walls
All has disappeared, the sparrow, the cat of the neighbor, the neighbor
I remained hanging just on by a thread imaginary
to make me other joys on the sill of the Day


Un passero sonnecchiava sul davanzale …
Sul primo raggio di sole, saltò pensando che sia un ramoscello
Il gatto della mia vicina giocava, apparentemente incurante, con la matassa dorata dal cielo…
Aprii la finestra, sbattendola senza intenzione, dai muri
Tutto è scomparso, il passero, il gatto della vicina, la vicina
Restai solo, appeso a un filo immaginario
per farmi altre gioie sul davanzale del Giorno


O vrabie ațipise pe pervaz…
pe întâia rază de soare, sări crezând că-i un ram
pisica vecinei se juca, aparent neatentă, cu ghemul auriu de pe cer…
am deschis fereastra, zbătând-o neintenționat… de ziduri
toate au dispărut, vrăbiuța, pisica vecinei, vecina
am rămas singur, atârnând de un fir imaginar
să-mi fac alte bucurii pe pervazul zilei
