jesenji vjetar...
vrana
visi u zraku

autumn wind . . .
a crow hanging
in the air

nikad ljepša
mreža starog pauka
-- jesenja magla

never nicer,
the old spider's webs . . .
autumn mist

nemaju težine
ni magla ni suhi list
što u njoj lebdi

weightless . . .
mist nor dry leaves
soar within

otpalo lišće
kočoperi se
na jesenjem vjetru

falling leaves . . .
peacocks in the
autumn wind

raširenih ruku
strašilo...
prve pahulje

with widespread
arms, the scarecrow . . .
first snowflakes
