As if Thru a Mist

As if Thru a Mist

By Djura Jakšić

Just like a ray that thru
A grey mist does flicker
And a bigger cloud that nears
To make the darkness thicker.

She too glimmers brief,
To deepen the shade, o!
To make inkier the dark,
To make greater the woe…

Translation from the Serbian by:
Ljiljana Parović

Kao kroz maglu

Kao kroz sivu maglu
Što samo sine zrak,
A gušći oblak dođe,
Da veći bude mrak.

I ona samo sinu,
Da opet dođe hlad,
Da veća tama bude,
Da veći bude jad…

flicker of light
