Melisa Esra✨
„Aveai un fel de noapte în ochi și-un fel de glas,
Că-n lupta de-a șoptitul, pe seară, m-ai rămas.
Într-adevăr, destinul e turburat de-o floare
Ieșită de neunde, necum și la-ntâmplare,
Și se trezește-n rouă din somnul ei închis,
Trecînd dintr-o visare tăcută într-alt vis.
Nici pravilele aspre, nici jugul lor nu pot
Să-mpiedice ivirea garoafelor detot.
E-o proaspătă năvală a noilor parfume.
Șarpele tău pătrunde, tîrîș, dintr-altă lume.”
~Scrisoare, Tudor Arghezi.

The translations aren't great, but the poems are. Not for those who aren't interested in post-symbolist, modernist poetry, esp. since Arghezi is interested in the grotesque and the irreverent. But even so, there are individual images, phrases, stanzas, poems that are evocative and interesting and sometimes even beautiful.

If I am to grade it from 1 to 5, I give it a 3. Not every line if full of beauty, but don't forget that "ugliness" is an aesthetic category as well. (Flori de mucegai)

I-am dat o sansa sa vad daca reusim sa ajungem la o intelegere dar nu a fost chup...florile de mucigai si balegaril nu ma atrag chiar daca sunt metaforice...

Si, dezlegind cuvintul de cuvinte,
S-alegem intelesurile pe sarite."
