A miracle..., Veronica film, 1972

Christmas is almost here and most of us tend to look for something memorable and unique for our loved ones. We are looking often for expensive things with all the known brands of products just to prove and show how much are caring for our precious, or sometimes just want to light up the tree and find the perfect song or poem for the souls to show our kids the wonder and mystery of the "Santa" spirit.

Veronica - 1972, movie by Elisabeta Bostan

Christmas is also the time when recount miracles from life, and this leads me to "Veronica", a successful musical fairy tale by Elisabeta Bostan, inspired by stories which carries a forward moral lessons written by known Romanian writers: Ion Creanga, Cezar Petrescu and Petre Ispirescu. Any child may have his own magic bag as Veronica (Lulu Mihaescu), (the little girl from the film who has received a magic bag by the Fairy on condition that she will always be a good little girl).

"Anyone's can be, and his and yours.
Only if one day you say so:
"I'm hardworking and good
I'm brave and daring,
I'm always quiet and good. / 

A oricui poate fi si a lui si a ta.
Doar daca intr-o zi poti spune asa:
”Eu sunt harnic si bun
Sunt viteaz si indraznet,
Cuminte si bun sunt oricand."

Since released in 1972, the film was a huge success; it is a movie for all ages and its songs, composed by Temistocle Popa, became very popular for many generations. It will fascinate you and the melody will ring out for long time in your ears, once you hear "A miracle / O minune" song played by Margareta Pâslaru (a Romanian singer and actress, "The Empress of the Ants"/ "Imparateasa Furnicilor" and "The Fair / Zana" in the movie).
It is more than a myth and all of us are praying for miracles in our life...

A miracle...
       lyrics by Mircea Block, music by Temistocle Popa

A miracle, a miracle
It is no question mark
Which appears in you life
And for which you find no answer
Anywhere a miracle
Can make each person
With a word, with a deed
From the bottom of his heart.

Re:I would ask one minute
Stop to hate
Only one minute
to believe in People
Gather daily
Only love in your soul
and the World better will be!.

A miracle, a miracle
It's what each person wants
When in his life appears once
A beginning of a life challenge
Only the man, only himself
Can make a miracle
Only he finds the purpose
Of the unknown paths.
A miracle...

muzica Temistocle Popa, versuri Mircea Block, canta Margareta Pislaru

O minune, o minune
Nu e semn de intrebare
Care-n viata ta apare
Si raspuns nu-i poti gasi
Orisiunde o minune
poate face fiecare
Cu o vorba, cu o fapta
Din indemnul inimii.

Re:V-as ruga un minut
Incetati sa urati
Un singur minut
Sa credeti in om
Adunati zi de zi
Doar iubire in voi
Si lumea mai buna va fi

O minune,o minune
Isi doreste fiecare
Cand in viata lui apare
Pragul unei incercari.
Numai omul, doar el singur
Poate face o minune
Numai el gaseste rostul
Tainuitelor Carari.
O minune….

Thanks to Hermina for the video.
