Help me with a translation

Postby Fabiano » 2015-03-03, 20:33

Hello there,

can someone tell me if this translation I did of a text originally written in Romanian is accurate and understandable enough?

Obviously, the answer must come from someone with a understanding of both languages:

Nu mă asemui profeților, pentrucă mie nici chiar petrile cu care au fost răsplătiți, nu mi se vir da. Predic in deșert totuși, pentrucă pustiul e aici înlauntrul meu, și mersul vorbelor va trece prin mine ca răcoarea serii în lunile de vară, lăsand un inceput de alinare și promisiune veșnic neîmplinită.

Pe marginea lor au trecut sau vor trece mereu nopți de turburare, de nedumerire și de speranțe. Ar fi mai bine dacă nici chiar predicătorul n'ar asculta la glasul său ci numai luminile și întunecimile văzduhului ar prinde înțelesul și l-ar purta peste tot ca pe aburii neíncepuți ai ploii până când undeva, cândva, vor pogori vorbele prefăcute în binecuvântare peste câmpiile arse de secetă.


(Nicolae Petra, Simplă Învăţătură, 1960)

Translation: I do not compare to the prophets, because not even stones will be given me as a reward. I preach in the desert, however, because the desert is here, inside of me, and the path of words will pass through me like an evening breeze in summer months, leaving me a principle of relief and of a promise eternally unfulfilled.

I have passed and will always pass nights of torment on the verge (of things), nights of insomnia and hope. It would be better if not even the preacher heard his own voice, but only the lights and darkness of the air would have an understanding of it, and would take it everywhere, like infant vapours would rain somewhere, anywhere, words turned into a blessing would go down through camps burned by drought.

Worthy corrections would be welcome!
Fabiano

OBS: I've posted this in the Romanian subforum and didn't get an answer.
