Autumnal Emotion

The colorful autumn is again in the air, filling with emotions our souls, and this make me to remember a song dear to my heart "Autumnal Emotion / Emotie de Toamna".  I've liked  Nicu Alifantis' talent since 80's when his career boosted by joining the folk movement promoted by Adrian Paunescu at  "The Flame Literary Circle / Cenaclul Flacara" . He is  a Romanian folk singers, musician and actor born on May 31st, 1954, in Braila, Romania.  You may read the English translation of the verses when listen him playing on his acoustic guitar and singing in Romanian the "Autumnal Emotion / Emotie de Toamna" song (thanks to doktorul for the video)

" Autumnal Emotion"  
                                    lyrics by Nichita Stanescu.
Autumn has come, it has come,
Cover with something my heart,
With the shadow of a tree or better,
Or better with your shadow.
I'm afraid that I won't see you sometimes,
That it will grow wings pointed to the clouds,
That you will mask behind an unusual eye,
And it will finish with a leaf of wormwood.
And I come nearby stones and I remain silent
I take the words and I sink them into the sea
I whistle to the moon, rising it and growing it
Into a great love...

Emoţie de toamnă
                         versuri Nichita Stanescu

A venit, a venit toamna,
acoperă-mi inima cu ceva,
Cu umbra unui copac sau mai bine
sau mai bine cu umbra ta.

Mă tem ca n-am să te mai văd uneori,
Că au să-mi crească aripi ascuţite până la nori,
Că ai să te ascunzi într-un ochi străin,
Şi el o să se-nchidă cu o frunză de pelin.
Şi-atunci mă apropii de pietre şi tac,
Iau cuvintele şi le-nec în mare.
Şuier luna şi o răsar şi o prefac
Într-o dragoste mare.
