Sada šetamo obalom.
Usamljenost i ja.

Berba je cvijeća,
a ona pogledom briše moje listove na nogama
i pjevajući se udvara.
Cvrčci su joj podrška;
a zalazeće sunce,
i vjetar koji puca
na mom licu – na njenoj su strani.
Nadjačava rijeku tiho mrmljajući tu pjesmu,
kao da šapuće u uho i ljubi prvi put;

Ne volim je.
Odgurnuo bih je sa stijena.
ali ko bi tada šetao sa mnom?


Сега по брега се разхождаме двамата.
Аз и самотата.
Бера ѝ цветя,
тя ме ухажва и запява нейната нежна
Щурците я подкрепят,
залязващото слънце също,
дори вятърът, който се блъска
в лицето ми, е на нейна страна.
Тя пее своята песен все по-тихо,
тя шепне в ухото ми и ме целува,
тя ме докосва нежно,
а аз я ненавиждам,
искам да я бутна от скалите.
Но кой ще остане до мен тогава?
