A game of drunken ashes/Igra pijanog pepela


A drunken dawn to hope I drink
won't know the smile to you does go
for you I'll pray of you will I think
send a curse of hell I will never show

my whisper behind your back unheard
a touch untouched by your hand
a burden of darkness placed in one word
secretly counting the grains of sand

the crumbs of my dawn from your brow
deep darkness will hide my shame
loudly shall I drink and silently bow
of drunken ashes it just a game






nazdravljam jutru s pijanom nadom
da ne znas da osmjeh ka tebi hodi
i da te kunem uzavrelim hadom
i molitvu sklapam u tvojoj vodi

da ne cujes sapat kad za tobom blijedi
dodir nedotaknut dodirom tvoji
da ne znas da ruka tmine mi cijedi
brojanice noci tiho kad brojim

i nazdravljam tmini zato sto skriva
mrve mog osvita sa tvoga cela
nazdravljam bucno jer sve sto biva
samo je igra pijanog pepela

1993.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
