When Muse Returns ~ Kad Se Vraćaju Muze - Poem by Jankovic Zoran

When are Muse coming back?
They are like the swallows:
Their secret is in heat
without which they do not survive.

They are then happy,
and from the magic wreath
knitting his nest,
its heat home.

Do you know if you touch,
with your hand,
nest of a swallow,
she will never come back?

When are Muse coming back?
I'm worried about them.
They are like the swallows:
Their secret in heat
without which they do not survive.

They are happy then
and from the magical wreath of poetry
knitting a nest for their poets,
songs that are their home.

I'm going to keep the nest
and to look to the south
because it's spring now
and the summer will come quickly
when a swallow return to us
may be with them will be
return my Muse.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kad se vraćaju Muze?
One su kao laste:
Njihova tajna je u toploti
bez koje ne opstaju.

One su tada srećne,
i od čarobnog vijenca
pletu svoje gnijezdo,
svoje toplote dom.

Znate li ako lastino gnijezdo
dodirnete rukom da se njega
lasta neće nikad vratiti?

Kad li se vraćaju Muze?
Brinem se za njih.
One su kao laste:
Njihova tajna u toploti
bez koje one ne opstaju.

One su tada srećne
i od čarobnog vijenca poezije
pletu gnijezdo svojim pjesnicima,
pjesme koje su njihov dom.

Idem da čuvam gnijezdo
i da gledam prema jugu
jer sad je proljeće
i brzo će doći ljeto
kad nam se vraćaju laste
a s njima možda će se
vrati i moja Muza
