Poem by Athanase Vnthev DE Thracy

 

Symphosius

Lampada tradam
(“I deliver the torch”)

Afternoon, beautiful as
The cooing of the turtledoves,
I’m getting bored under
The caresses of freshness.

Abundant Beautiful-of-day
Adorn the air
And make heavenly
The little garden.

They don’t want to sleep
At this time.

Over me above me
The Red fruits of the hawthorn
Glow gracefully
In the darkness of the wall
Running around the house.

A solar silence
Hold the world in its embrace!

By sleep me
I’m thinking about the famous collection
Of Latin riddles aenigmata
The Caelius Firmianus Symphosius!

And I dream, pressed against the ochre wall
At that prodigious time where anguish
Got a captivating word!

My God, what a job,
What a lot of white nights!
Would I have been able to do so much effort?

Athanasius vantchev of thracy
