Pavlović, Ranko: Hunting (Лов in English)

Portre of Pavlović, Ranko

Лов (Serbian)

Ловили смо скакавце и лептирове,
да се на ливади сити наиграмо...

... онда смо ловили зечеве и срндаће,
да се наједемо и опстанемо,

онда смо ловили лисице и вукове,
да не лове наше зечеве и срндаће,

онда смо ловили друге ловце,
да не лове нашу ловину...

... па смо почели да ловимо сами себе,
јер ко једном крене у лов – не зауставља се.

Hunting (English)

We hunted grasshoppers and butterflies,
Just to have enough play in the meadow …
... then we hunted rabbits and roebucks,
Just to gorge ourselves and to survive,
Then we hunted foxes and wolves,
to stop them hunting our rabbits and roebucks,
then we hunted other hunters,
to stop them hunting our quarry…
... so we started to hunt ourselves,
for he who once starts hunting – never stops.
