Autumn’s Poet by Marius Alexandru 

I bathe in a whirlwind of lost leaves,
and I slowly sink in brassy waves,
My hopes are hidden in a corner,
Through heavy clouds,
today the fabric of light falls apart.

I let myself be carried by the birds, wandering through the flocks,
and I fly toward leadenly and dusty horizons.
My broken wings hang on me folds after folds,
My worries run down my ravaged thoughts,
I am swallowed up by a desert of tears,
and the rays of faith are slowly melting in the dark,
I am alone, sad, abandoned, hungry,
Autumn's melancholic depressed poet.
I dance with the leaves, united in a dance of joy,
and I rise to the shores of dreams,
Living hopes burn in a flame of testimony
and stripped of my shadow,
I head for the sun.

Carried by white birds to unknown heights,
dying little by little, I go forward toward Life,
with my wide-open reborn wings,
I float carelessly to the Eternal Morning.
Rains of happiness bloomed again on the streets,
and out of faith, I built a strong parapet.
New sources of love are born in me.
Today I am Autumn's happiest poet.
