Carmen Ezgeta

Ja nemam mira, a u rat ne hrlim;
Leden a gorim, plasim se i nadam;
Po nebu letim, a na zemlju padam;
Ne hvatam nista, a svijet citav grlim.

Amor me kazni da sred uza stojim,
Nit omcu drijesi, nit okove steze,
Nit da me smakne, nit da odveze,
Nece me ziva, ne smatra me svojim.

Bez vida vidim, nijem glasane gubim:
Umrijeti zudim, a pomoci trazim,
Sebi sam mrzak, a drugoga ljubim.

Nit mi se mrije nit mi se zivi,
Smijem se placuci, zaloscu se snazim.
Ovakvom stanju vi ste, gospo, krivi.

I find no peace, and have no arms for war,
and fear an
d hope, and burn and yet I freeze,
and fly t
o heaven, lying on earth's floor,
and nothi
ng hold, and all the world I seize.

My jailer opens not, nor locks the door,
nor binds m
e to hear, nor will loose my ties;
Love kills me not, nor breaks the chains I wear,
nor want
s me living, nor will grant me ease.

I have no tongue, and shout; eyeless, I see;
I long t
o perish, and I beg for aid;
I love an
other, and myself I hate.

Weeping I laugh, I feed on misery,
by death a
nd life so equally dismayed:
for you, m
y lady, am I in this state.

Pace non trovo e non ho da far guerra
e temo, e spero; e ardo e sono un ghiaccio;
e volo sopra 'l cielo, e giaccio in terra;
e nulla stringo, e tutto il mondo abbraccio.

Tal m'ha in pregion, che non m'apre ne sera,
ne per suo mi riten ne scioglie il laccio;
e non m'ancide Amore, e non mi sferra,
ne mi vuol vivo, ne mi trae d'impaccio.

Veggio senz'occhi, e non ho lingua, e grido;
e bramo di perire, e chieggio aita;
e ho in odio me stesso, e amo altrui.

Pascomi di dolor, piangendo rido;
egualmente mi spiace morte e vita:
in questo stato son, donna, per voi.
