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.

  Molitva


 

Sloji rqka na moyte ustni,

kogato, morna da blujdae,

krila dushata mi otpusne

i bezuteshna vqzroptae;

sloji rqka i zapazi me!

Da ne nadvie skrqb bezmerna,

i v gnyav, i v gorest tvoyto ime

s pohulni dumi da zacherna.
