Song of Hope

Nedyalko Yordanov

When it seems
that there is no hope
it’s all over now –
do not be troubled,
do not forgive,
do not surrender, man.
Say – I do not care
pelvis of misfortune –
I can, I believe, I know
that despite the fact
this is intermission
this is intermission – not the end.
Singed by fire,
all cast,
closed in the darkest room –
do lurks,
do not despair –
tell you: this is not the end!
Say: I do not care
pelvis of misfortune –
I can, I believe, I know
that despite the fact
this is intermission
this is intermission – not the end!

1976
