 Dalmatia, weary of history

 (Lj.Stipišić-Lj.Stipišić)

 
DALMATINO, POVIŠĆU PRITRUJENA             DALMATIA, WEARY OF HISTORY                  

(Izbliđeni Misal svetog Jerolima,        
izlizana Bašćanska tavuleta               
rvackeg ditinjevanja.                     
Zaudobjeni friži                          
glagojaških serpentini                    
isfrolani patakuni, žurke i kadeni.)      

(Izlizani Ideali i Misali                
po rvackin oputinan                       
Sokolaški procesjuni                      
pricešćeni demostracjuni                  
od taverni do taverni                     
Svitlošju kerv častna                     
vikovični terpećemu                       
naslidovati pođerda Balkanike.)           

Pute, laze pizon dubli tovari.            Paths, entrances of fields worn deep by donkeys.  
Gustirne žedne, mijun sići i lati.        Wells thirsty from millions of buckets.
Konkulana škina težakov od motik          Backs of peasants bent from hoeing       
po žurnatin, žurnatin pritrujena.         weary from day-labourer toil.               

Prage kalet žnjutin dubli puntari,        Doorways of narrow streets worn deep by rebels' ankles, 
naboj Dalmatine rebati na drači,          Festering sore of Dalmatia on thorn-bushes,    
kroz kadene dicu čičan pasli,             Through the chains, hungry children tempted by breasts,       
a judi driti ka kolone,                   And the people upright as stone columns,         
Dalmatino, povišću pritrujena.            Dalmatia, weary of history.              

Intradu pravice s tilin štrukali.         Harvest of righteousness was reaped by bodies.        
Dalmatino, povišću pritrujena!            Dalmatia, weary of history!                 

Rod puntarski resa na drači.              Rebellion was sired on the thorn-bushes,              
Dalmatino, povišću pritrujena!            Dalmatia, weary of history!                

Ditinjstvon gladnin povist štukali,       The history was stopped by hungry childhood,        
Dalmatino, povišću pritrujena.            Dalmatia, weary of history!                  

Kroz kadene dicu čičan pasli,             Through the chains, hungry children tempted by breasts,          
a judi driti ka kolone,                   and the people upright as stone columns,         
Dalmatino, povišću pritrujena!            Dalmatia, weary of history!
