Why don't you come?

By Mihai Eminescu

Translation by Corneliu M. Popescu

See the gross sales give up

And the fallen yellow walnut leaves,

] The vineyards with autumn are trumpets,

Why don't you come, why don't you come?

Oh, come to my arms on the arms

That I might take a look at your face,

And let the top be in grateful relaxation

I keep in mind you while you rejected

The Mages and the Secret,

I kissed you in the midst of the blooming thyme

What number of hours

Some girls on the earth is

What eyes shine just like the night star,

However don’t care what,

You aren’t such as you, they don’t seem to be!

My soul all the time shines

A lot softer than the starlight,

Love is fallen from the tomb,

The scenes are bears, the birds are silly.

Why didn't you come, why didn't you?
