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.

Za utre shtedro mi obrichash

nektar vqv srebqrni potiri...

O, znaya - mnogo me obichash

i ne obrichash na shega, -

no ne e losho i sega

da hvqrlim oshte dve-tri biri...

A?

 

Za utre puri mi obrichash,

cenata na koito pari...

O, znaya - mnogo me obichash

i ne obrichash na shega, -

no ne e losho i sega

da sviem oshte dve cigari...

A?

 

Za utre shtedro mi obrichash

palati - blyasqk i omaya...

O, znaya - mnogo me obichash

i ne obrichash na shega, -

no ne e losho i sega

da prenoshtuvam v tvoyta staya...

A?
