Lovro Katana | Vrt ljubavi - William Blake: The Garden of Love

 

William Blake: 

The Garden of Love


I went to the Garden of Love,

And saw what I never had seen:

A Chapel was built in the midst,

Where I used to play on the green.


And the gates of this Chapel were shut,

And ʺThou shalt notʺ writ over the door;

So I turnʹd to the Garden of Love

That so many sweet flowers bore;


And I saw it was filled with graves,

And tomb-stones where flowers should be;

And Priests in black gowns were walking their rounds,

And binding with briars my joys & desires.

Vrt ljubavi


Pošao sam Vrtu ljubavi

I ugledao neviđeno:

Kapelu usred zelenila

Što stoji gdje nekad igrah se.


Dveri kapele zatvorena

Bila su: „Nesmiješ ući“ preko 

Vrata pisalo je; okrenuh se

Stoga vrtu ljubavi u cvatu.


Ugledah mnoštvo grobova

Bez cvijeća što opustjelo stoje,

Svećenike gdje stazom im kruže

I u trnje čeznuća mi vežu.
