Lord Arthur’s Tale

Once, there lived a mighty bear

He was a strength of nature,

A lord that ruled the woods he was

And life was his adventure.

 

He worried that the woods grew thin,

No room to place his bed.

A mind of metal and wheels men had

As Tolkien once said.

 

They wanted more, and more, and more,

Also his fur and head,

So when they finally made their move

One shot and he was dead.

 

“You shot me down”, the great bear roared,

“Both common folk and princes

You are the same you were before

For silver – thirty pieces.

 

You think that life is bought and sold,

That laws can be ignored,

You are not brave, not smart, or bold,

You just do what you learned.”

 

It happened so that woods became

A bargain for that land.

They were put down and sold as well.

Instead – a sea of sand.

 

You can consider this a tale,

A simple tale of fate,

But learn the lessons, learn them well

Before it is too late.

    • Se poate sa mai avem, dar la cum se misca treaba, pare ca totul a fost deja amanetat. E un proverb grecesc “A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they shall never sit.” Aici e exact pe dos.

    • Multumesc! Sunt chiar momente cand parca se asaza mai usor in engleza. Depinde de stare, presupun, sincer, nu stiu de ce depinde. 🙂 Ma bucur cand reusesc sa redau ceva din ce incerc sa transmit. ❤
