A Record About a Land – Mak Dizdar

A Record About a Land – Mak Dizdar

A worthy inquirer thus once proceeded to ask another:

Who is that what is it, pardon me,

Where is it

Whence and

Whither

This

Bosnia

Tell

The questioned one then swiftly replied thus:

Bosnia, pardon me, there is such a land,

Barren and barefoot, pardon me,

And hungry and cold

And, on top of it all,

Pardon me

Defiant

From

Dreaming.

Mehmedalija Mak Dizdar
