O. SAVICH: "I Did Not Dream..."

"I Did Not Dream..."

(From Antonio Machado)
I did not dream of ever gaining
the great-great fame and of embedding
my song into the hearts of fans;
I like all that is wholly airy,
all that is weightless, all that’s fairy
like soap bubbles’ friendly clans.
I like when they, so gay and selfish,
drink sun and carmine, get a flight
to skies and then, as in a fright,
shudder and break and promptly vanish. 


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, December, 2002
