To Eminescu
Monica Purcarea

                                    I saw a tree  
                                   With deep roots 
                                   In the hearts of the people. 
                                   It was a high tree 
                                   Which was singing, 
                                   Singing with the nightingale 
                                   And with voices of the violine, 
                                   But especially 
                                   With voices of man 
                                   I took a better look at him  
                                   And I didn't know what it was, 
                                   A willow tree or a lime tree or 
                                   Maybe a poplar... 
                                   And then, I don't know why, 
                                   I thought again of Eminescu.
