To a Poet

How did you catch my eye so suddenly,
Together with the wind, the flowers, the trees,
Together with the song, the river, the sea,
Together with hope, pain and laughter?
You caught my eye so suddenly
or were you there from the start?

by Ritu Petro

(from the volume Vargje tė pėrfqluara, Tirana 1994, p.25. Translated by Robert Elsie)

Oh mountains of Albania

Oh mountains of Albania and you, oh trees so lofty,
Broad plains with allyour flowers, day and night I contemplate you,
You highlands so exquisite, and you streams and rivers sparkling,
Oh peaks and promontories, and you slopes, cliffs, verdant forests,
Of the herds and flocks I'll sing ut which you hold and which you nourish.
Oh you blessed, sacred places, you inspire and delight me!

You Albania, give me honour, and you name me as Albanian,
And my heart you have replenished bith with ardour and desire.
Albania! Oh my mother! Though in exile I am longing,
My heart has ne'er forgotten all the love you've given to me.

When a lambkin from its flock strays and does hear its mother's bleating,
Once or twice it will ive answer and will flee in her direction,
Were others, twenty-thirty fold, to block its path and scare it,
Despite its fright it would return, pass through them likean arrow,
Thus my wretched heart in exile, here in foreign land awaiting,
Hastens back umto that country, swift advancing and in longing.

Where cold spring water bubbles and cool breezes blow in summer,
Where the foliage grows so fairly, where the flowers have such fragrance,
Where the shepherd plays his reed pipe to the grazing of the cattle,
Where the goats, their bells resounding, rest, yes 'tis the land I long for.

by Naim Frashėri

(excerpt from O Malet' e Shqipėrisė, from the volume Bagėti e bujqėsija, Bucharest 1886. Translated by Robert Elise)

Ballad of the man the world did not know

Every morning he sent letters off to the whole world
With imaginary addresses and confusing messages
And on them he licked the stamps of his suffering
The man the world did not know.

He rose and bowed to present himself
With arms raised he cried out to his own idols
He loitered in train stations, anticipated friends who never came to see
The man the world did not now.

Every day at dawn he waited at the gate
For the postman to bring him replies
To his correspondence from someone in the far wide world
The man the world did not know.

Message after message, words and requests
Not a scrap of dust on his typewriter
Not even the spiders came to rest in the room
Of the man the world did not know.

And one day he stopped living, he had no more ink
His quill dried up, his typewriter fell silent
Who is this poor fellow? they said when they found him dead
The man the world did not know.

The funeral parlour buried him
And put on his grave a tombstone
Only one letter arrived at his address
The bill for the burial
Of the man the world did not know.


(Baladė pėr njeriun qė nuk e njihte bota, from the volume Atleti i ėndrrave tė bardha, Prishtina: Rilindja 1982, p. 17, translated by Robert Elise)

Balkan menu

Don't set the table, love
let's go out for dinner
We'll leave early
And come back late
Life here in Europe's changed
Come on, love let's go
Let's have some punch
At the Admiral Bar
And a coupe royale
At the Montreal sidewalk cafe
In Benny's pool room
We'll try a arom behind our backs
We'll have a cappuccino
At Marilyn's cafeteria
And a martini with olives at the Florida Club
Don't set the table, love
Let's go out for dinner
To the Miami Pizzeria
And have a pizza New Jersey
An escaloppe viennese at the Roma restaurant
And then go to Parma's
for a coupe macédonienne
And when it gets late
We'll go back home
To empty our bowels
In a Balkan latrine

The last gate

I have flung open the gates
to my soul,
Only one I keep closed,
The last gate.
There linger the angels,
There loiter the devils.
If you approach the angels,
You will make me your slave,
If you approach the devils,
You will become my slave.

The last gate will remain closed.

Do not demand any promises

Do not demand any promises,
Promises like keys can be lost,
Do not demand constant love,
Eternity and the shadows of death lurk nearby,
Never demand any unsaid words,
Words mean no more than objects.
Demand only that I change one moment
In your long life.

This love

This love
Has inflated my breast,
But there is little air around me.

This love
Has given me the heavens,
But my window is so small.

This love
Demands that i surrender my all
But the fear of sin
Is as old as the world itself.

Help me, oh God, to understand,
Does this love cut off the shackles
Or put them on?
