Oh me!

We are so small between the stars & so large against the sky. and lost in subway croud, I try to catch your eye …..

Leave me as I am – Rita Petro


( Taken from  http://www.albanianliterature.net/authors_modern1/petro_poetry.html)

Hindi translation has been taken from here. Translator: Siddheshwar Singh

रहने दो मुझे जैसी हूँ मैं
अगर नींद मुझे पकड़  लेती है पेड़ों के बीच
हो सकता मैंने पहने हों आधे – अधूरे कपड़े
रहने दो मुझे जैसी हूँ मैं।

पे्ड़ों को और मुझे भी
भाता है पहनने और निर्वसन होने का कौतुक
वे सूर्य के समक्ष करते हैं यह काम
और मैं तुम्हारे।


Leave me as I am,
If sleep finds me between those trees,
Even though I am only half-dressed,
Leave me as I am!
The trees and I
Love to dress and undress.
They do it in front of the sun,
I do it in front of you.

[Lermë kështu siç jam, from the volume Vargje të përfolura, Tirana 1994, p. 11. Translated from the Albanian by Robert Elsie]
