SHALLI I ZI

Veshtroj si i cmendur nje shall pis te zi
Dhe shpirtin e ftohte ma mbyt nj’angushti.

I ri kur kam qene, plot vrull, guximtar.
Nje greke te bukur e desha me zjarr.

Dhe puthjet e saja nuk kishte mbarim.
Por ishte i shkruar i zi fati im.

Nje nate po pinja me miq ne gosti,
Kur portes trokiti nj’i lig jahudi.

“Ti pi e defrehesh” cifuti me tha,
“por grekja e bukur, te shkoi e te la”

I dhashe te holla me lot e mallkim
Dhe thirra tronditur te vij skllavi im.

Dhe dolem. Vraponim mbi kuajt veri,
Meshira me flinte ketu mu ne gji.

Dhe porsa e pashe, oh, pragun e saj
M’u erren krejt syte, m’u mbushen me vaj.

Dalldisur shoh vajzen qe mua s’me ndjen.
Ne krahe e pushtonte plot afsh nje armen.

Prap syte m’u erren e thika gjemoi
Ai as te puthuren dot s’e mbaroi.

Kufomen e shtyva me kembe. Pastaj,
Vajtova mbi vajzen, mbi gjoksin e saj.

Kujtoj si po dridhej, si lutej ngadal…
Me vdiq dhe kjo greke me shkoi dhe ky mall!

Dhe shallin ja hoqa, s’iu desh ai me,
Celikun e thikes e fshiva me te.

Dhe skllavi kur nata gjith gjurmet i humb,
Kufomat e tyre i hodh ne Danub.

Q’ahere nuk puth sy te bukur me jo,
Dhe nete gezimesh q’ahere nuk njoh.

…Veshtroj si i cmendur un’ shallin e zi
Dhe shpirtin e ftohte ma mbyt nj’angushti.
