Peyo Yavorov ( Peyo Totev Kracholov, January 1, 1878–October 17, 1914) was a Bulgarian Symbolist poet. He was considered to be one of the finest poetic talents in the fin de siècle Kingdom of Bulgaria. Yavorov was a prominent member of the Misal group. His life and work are closely connected with the liberation movement Internal Macedonian-Adrianople Revolutionary Organization in Macedonia.

Most of his poems are romantic in subject, and dedicated to the two women in his life — Mina Todorova and Lora Karavelova. His first (and arguably greatest) love Mina died from tubercolosis, which greatly saddened Yavorov. She was buried in the cemetery of Boulogne Billancourt.

Best Poem of Peyo Yavorov

A Howling Gale

The broken leaf … God knows where
The wind will wrench.
Just as the orphan
For a foreign land departs -
Cast off, unquenched.

The broken leaf … finds solace somewhere
in the vail.
For him none waits,
So why the little orphan
For the motherland should wail?
