Sweet Spring


We welcome you with open arms

To add color on the white canvas of winter.

Like your sister, your purity is reflected

In the white petals of the dainty snowdrop,

That announces your arrival every year

On the first day of March.

You wake us up from hibernation

And help us get ready to start anew.

You warm our heart with your gentle breeze

Before giving us a large bouquet of flowers.


The Woman



Tough cookie,

Has a heart of gold,

Earns people’s respect through her good deeds,

Works towards her realistic life goals,

Observes everyone and everything around her,

Makes the right decisions with the help of wisdom,

Always aware of life’s challenges,

Never gives up without a fight.




You remind us of spring’s victory

Over winter through Mărțișor.

Luck smiles upon us through the smile

Of the diligent chimney sweep

That gets ready to leave after finishing

Cleaning the soot left by the evil spirits

That spent the winter in our chimney.

You celebrate women and mothers,

Symbols of spring with the spirit of a fighter

Underneath that loving, generous and kind exterior.

You inspire courage to us through the gem of the sea

And invite us to draw a lesson from Saint Patrick’s

Lesson about the Holy Trinity held on the field of clovers.
