Translated Works

Black Song 

Dimcho Debelyanov is a genius Bulgarian poet and author. He wrote one of the most emblematic poems in Bulgarian literature. His amazing talent perished in World War I when he was just 29. Some people compare him to the greats in English literature, which is why I tried to translate one of his works into English. I hope I have managed to achieve this. Enjoy!

Poetry

The Beginning of Spring Green 

Spring has come! The season that marks the rebirth of everything – plants, trees, animals, dreams. However, I am sitting on a stump in the forest near my favorite bubbling brook, but my eyes don’t see the river bank nor my ears hear the twitter of the birds. My mind is my all senses, I am far away… away on a beach with a wistful smile.
