Last night I wondered where you had found to sleep.
You weren’t in bed. There was no-one in your chair.
Through every window the white, full moon glared .
I shivered in the garden. Where are you, my darling?
I called out miserably: You will catch cold .
Waking, I let the daytime facts unfold.
Noaptea trecuta m-am intrebat unde ai adormit.
Nu erai in pat. Pe scaunul tau nu statea nimeni.
Prin fiecare fereastra luna plina si alba ma privea cu asprime.
In gradina m-au trecut fiorii. Unde esti, dragule ?
Te-am strigat nefericita: O sa racesti .
Dupa ce m-am trezit mi-am vazut de ale mele. Gabriela Burcea
