Janík, Pavol: Kosovo

Portre of Janík, Pavol

Kosovo (Slovak)

Horiaci
papierový
Goethe
sa modlí
po srbsky
za štyristo mŕtvych detí

V Schillerovom kamennom oku
sa leskne slza ortuti

Je to cigánsky plač
za malou rómskou vílou
na dne Jadranského mora

Krv
má neodolateľnú farbu
modravého svitu neba
z ktorého padá
ľahká a trblietavá
ako sprej májového dažďa
aby zúrodnila poranenú zem

Kosovo (English)

A burning
paper Goethe
prays
in Serb
for four hundred dead children

In Schiller’s stone eye
gleams a tear of mercury

There’s a Gypsy weeping
for a little Romany fairy
at the bottom of the Adriatic

Blood
has an irresistible color
of the bluish dusk of the sky
from which falls
light and glitterings
like a gust of May rain
to fertilize the wounded earth
