Poems by Melita Mely Ratković

Επιμέλεια: Εύα Πετροπούλου Λιανού


Pearl shell, carefully polished
diamond is not for everyone
For the grain of sand to shine,
it takes a lot of time.

It is not easy to be a wife, mother, servant, queen, protector of her birth.
So many roles in one being.
Everything worth taking takes time.

Guard the rare jewel, so that it shines.
Incredibly fragile, in appearance,
it opens gently, easily. Alone a miracle to himself, he gives birth to a new life in pain.
