Preprosta Pesem Tišine (A Simple Song of Silence)

 

To praznino zapolnjujeva s pesmijo, in cvetovi, pticami in

ljubečimi besedami. Vendar v najini noči se vrzel vrne, in celo

solze se preprosto porabijo.

 

Dnevi in tedni vsak dodajo svoje vrstice, ki hladno zahtevajo

svoj davek, in tišina preganja nasmehe, ki jih tvoriva najine

solze ne bodo upočasnile potek časa.

 

Ne morem prenašati radosti, ki si jo zamudila. Tako tukaj sediva

in gledava sijaj žerjavice, ki drsi v pepel. Glasba potihne in

prepuščena sva

 

ničemur, samo spokojnosti, in solzam, ki se rojevajo, vendar

nikoli ne padejo.

  1. It was wonderfull to read it on Slovenian,even tho I am not sure about all of the words. It also makes my heart warm when expiriencing something like this, seeing how close all the Balkan languages actually are.

    • I’m currently trying to learn Slovene, and would love to learn more Balkan languages (it is proving pretty tough, I must say…). It’s good to know there are many similarities.
      Reading Natasa’s translation out loud, even with my awful pronunciation, is a really lovely experience.

      • Well, from what I heard from other people here at Balkans, Slovene is the hardest one of all, they usualy tell me it is the msot sophisticated one, almost like the aristocratic version of a Balkan language:)
