Dimcho Debelyanov

Born in Koprivštitza, studied in Plovdiv but like most Bulgarian intellectuals graviated in Sofia. Drew inspiration from Pentcho Slaveykov whos cast of mind fitted Debelyanov's melancholy. Striking spiritual affinity between Yavorov and Debelyanov. During his poetically immature period, 1906-1910, worked odd jobs to suuport himself. In his prime mature period, 1911-1915, symbolism was a leading component in his writing but he also wrote a very personal lyrics.
Volunteered for service and killed in Greece on October 2, 1916.

 Az iskam da te pomnya...


 

Az iskam da te pomnya vse taka:

bezdomna, beznadejdna i unila,

v rqka mi vplela plamnala rqka

i do sqrce mi skqrben lik sklonila.

Gradqt daleche trqpne v mqten dim,

kray nas, na hqlma, trqpnat dqrvesata

i lyubovta ni syakash po` e svyata,

zashtoto tryabva da se razdelim.

 

"V zori shte trqgna, ti v zori doydi

i donesi mi svoya vzor proshtalen -

da go pripomnya veren i pechalen

v chasa, kogato Tya shte pobedi!"

- O, Morna, Morna, v burya skqrshen zlak,

ukriy molbite, vyarvay - proletta ni

nedosqnuvan sqn ne shte ostane

i ti pri mene shte se vqrnesh pak!

 

A vse po-strashno pada nosht nad nas,

chqrtayat mreji prilepite v mraka,

uteha setna tvoyta nemosht chaka,

a v svoyta vyara sam ne vyarvam az.

I ti otpushtash plamnala rqka

i trqgvash, pogled v tqmninite vpila,

izgubila dori za sqlzi sila. -

Az iskam da te pomnya vse taka...
