Associated with spring,

Palm Sunday,

Raindrops are Heaven’s tears

In the day of the crucifixion of Jesus,

Lent reminds us to add spiritual discipline.


Welcome, Prier1!


You invite us to joke with

The humorous Păcală2

To replace the melancholic state

With a healthy dose of joy.


Despite Dochia’s3 cold breathe,

You encourage the flowers of Mary’s Garden

To continue to look up to the sun,

To give us a reason to celebrate


Every day of our life.

You knock on the window

In the morning to remind us

To get ready to welcome Christ.

On Terra’s long hair

Like crystal tears

Dewdrops gleamed





Dewdrops gleamed

Like crystal tears

On Terra’s long hair.
