Plumb (English translation)
Dormeau adânc sicriele de plumb,
Si flori de plumb si funerar vestmint --
Stam singur în cavou... si era vint...
Si scirtiiau coroanele de plumb.
Dormea întors amorul meu de plumb
Pe flori de plumb, si-am inceput să-l strig --
Stam singur lângă mort... si era frig...
Si-i atirnau aripile de plumb.
The coffins made of lead were lying sound asleep,
So did the flowers made of lead and funerary vestment...
I stood there solitary, in the vault... and there was wind...
And the lead wreaths creaked.
Upturned, my lead love lay asleep
On flowers made of lead, and I began to call it.
I stood there solitary, beside the corpse... and it was cold...
Its wings of lead were drooping.
