Pohvala vatri

Pohvala vatri

I
Ona nema nikoga osim sunca i mene

II
Ona se ukazuje lutalici
ukazuje se lukavom
ukazuje se zaljubljenom

Ništa nije izgubljeno u vatri
samo je sažeto

III
Na krajevima vatre
predmeti koji ne svetle
niti se nečim drugim odlikuju
traju u tuđem vremenu

Ptica koja sama čini jato
iz nje izleće
Uzmite šaku svežeg pepela
ili bilo cega što je prošlo
i videćete da je to još uvek vatra
ili da to može biti


Ode to the Fire

I
She has no one but the Sun and me

II
She appears to a vagabond
to the witty one
to the one in love

Nothing is lost in fire
it has only been interpreted

III
At the edges of fire
objects that don't glow
nor by any other means are,
last in somebody else's time

One-bird flock
flies out of it.

Take a handful of ashes
or anything that has passed
and you'll see that it still is fire
or that it could be

(Translated by Aleksandra Milanović)
