Vlastta

 The power

 

Vlastta

 was being born from the swamp

 

Se razhdashe ot blatoto

 popping baloons-eyes

 

Izkachaha mehurcheta-ochichki

 

 

 

 hand-shaking, blooding, and heading

 

Rqkuva se krqvasya oglavi se

 

 

Ozqbi se podslusha osqzna se

 

 

 

 

 

Kato dete se obigra glasuva se

 

 

Obezkosmi mqha po sebe si

 

 

Chlenuva se za da se obladae

 

 

Obsebi se vqzpya se uvencha se

 

 

 

 

 

Beztzeremonno no se koronyasa

 

 

Podsmrqkna smqrch za emfie

 

 

Oznamenuva se Skalqpi si obuvki

 

 

Obgerbva se I drehi si sqshi.

 

 

 

 

 

Pouprazhni se paradira rqkoplyska si

 

 

Podplashi ptizite gadinkite navsyakqde

 

 

 

 

 

Nakqrshi malko zaharna trqstika

 

 

Izsqrba blatoto obezlichi se

 

 

Na myastoto mu slegna zamqgleno:

 

 

Telohranitel

 

 

Pochva

 

 

Gospodar

 

 

Na slobosilnite trqstiki
