The Star

The Star

By Vojislav Ilić

Bright is the night,
Pale is a moonray,
In sweetness sinks
All of the Milky Way.

And little stars,
Cast their ray…
One has blinked
Then faded away.

Whose star was it?
Only God can say!
Serene and still is
All of the Milky Way.

Translation from the Serbian by:
Ljiljana Parović

Zvezda

Noć je vedra, blaga,
bledi mesec sja,
u milini tone
vasiona sva.

I zvezdice mile
rasipaju zrak…
Samo jedna trepnu,
pa je pokri mrak.

Čija beše zvezda?
Bog jedini zna!
Spokojna je, mirna
vasiona sva.
