Da quanto tempo

da quanto tempo siamo senza legami con la storia
dentro una sala d’attesa di soltanto due posti
tutto si basa sull’ipotesi di un bacio lungo e straordinario
prima che le porte chiudano

The man with the round hat

The man with the round hat
it stops suddenly and as if
sinks into the green shadow of the hill

sharp sound

probably already pruning tea
roses from last summer
or for the future

summer that hides in the noise
of the river that ends with a rainbow

I see a red flower in the middle of a mown
grass and it cuts me

yes spring

I sit and slowly respect myself
because my gaze is wasted
so early and so late for
emerald fires Yes spring

one’s pupils shine even now
now the world is a mouse
now it’s Robinson Crusoe
it is a consolation to see some by the hand
Yes spring

slow skies pass by
new pimples swell
and farewells

Geo Milev: ‘The Icons are Sleeping’ and ‘September’ Translated by Tom Phillips

The High Window


The Bulgarian poet, translator and critic Geo Milev (1895-1925) was a leading figure in European modernism, but his work has only rarely been translated into English. The poems here are considered to be among his most important: ‘The Idols Are Sleeping’ (1922) is a reworking of five traditional Bulgarian songs while ‘September’ (1924) is Milev’s response to the violent suppression of a popular uprising against the right-wing coup in Bulgaria in 1923. Milev was secretly executed during state-led reprisals against the communist bombing of Sofia’s St Nedelya church in 1925.

Finally, it is worth mentioning that in the originals Milev makes much use of rhyme and that even those of us  with no Bulgarian may appreciate the opportunity of  listening to the astonishing sound effects he achieves in a poem like ‘September’. I have therefore added a link to it at the bottom of this feature.

 more winter
 the blue bird shrinks on the bare branch
 of the chestnut against my window

“Behold the summer has passed,
as if it never happened.”*

from the new summer
the sudden rain
which demolishes the tip
and the first leaf from
the inevitable autumn

Only this is not enough.”*
