To Me Without Me

To Me Without Me

By Augustin Tin Ujević

Resin hours go by senselessly,
A sullen man dreams bodilessly,
Twilight passion burns namelessly,
And love sobs, sobs pointlessly;

And today all is empty infinitely,
And the wind sweeps inconsolably,
Thru bare souls which ceaselessly
Seek and hug hopelessly, endlessly.

Translation by: Ljiljana Parović

Meni bez mene

Ure od smole cure besmisleno,
sumorni čovjek snatri bestjelesno,
sutonska strast se boji bezimeno,
a ljubav jeca, jeca bespredmetno;

i sve je danas prazno beskonačno,
a vjetar duva, duva bezutješno
na gole duše koje neprestano
ištu i grle beznadno, beskrajno.
