I

Night-Piece

I saw within the shadows of the yard the shed
and saw the snow upon its roof—
an oblong glowing in the moonlit night.
I could not rest or close my eyes,
although I knew that I must rise
early next morning and begin my work again,
and begin my work again.
That day was lost—that month as well;
and year and year for all that I can tell.

da je imala ljubavnike
kazao je samo:
jedan od njih
mogao je imati cigaru
i zapaliti ambar.
