Prayer for Signs

Petre Anghel, translated by Daniel Ionita

Tell us, again, Sir,

That we are made of earth,

And this is not a curse,

The earth is a star

And we all shall be morning-stars.

Tell us once more

That you owned nothing of more value

Than the Son

And you let him become earth

Until you summoned him.

Tell us anew

That simple tale about the lifting of the eyelids

And the wedding with the heavenly light

In which Lazarus comes forth from the grotto

At your simple call.

I know, my Lord, that you have told us,

But we are made of earth,

And earth cannot hold water by swamping

And lets it flow

Until we reach the stars.

Give us another sign

That you have saved for us a name.

Petre Anghel
