What Color Are Your Eyes ~ Kakve Su Boje Tvoje Oči - Poem by Jankovic Zoran

What color are your eyes

I asked you nicely:
What color are your eyes?
You did not answer me.
I will tell you and tell you to others:
Your eyes are colors of sorrow
in which the pearls are hidden.
Your eyes are the colors of desire
in which youth is concealed.
Your eyes are a color of hopelessness
in which you are hiding.
Your eyes are a color of secret
you never told me.
Now you do not have to
you say what colors are your eyes.

Kakve su boje tvoje oči

Lijepo sam te pitao:
Kakve su boje tvoje oči?
Nisi mi odgovorila.
Rećiću ti a ti reci drugima:
Tvoje su oči boje tuge
u kojoj su sakriveni biseri.
Tvoje su oči boje želje
u kojoj je sakrivena mladost.
Tvoje su oči boje beznadja
u koje se ti sakrivaš.
Tvoje su oči boje tajne
koju mi nisi nikad rekla.
Eto sad ne moraš da mi
kažeš kakve su boje tvoje oči.

    The eyes are the windows of the soul. You looked through her windows seeing everything there was to see. Beautiful poem. (Report)Reply
