Nikola Vaptsarov – in memoriam


103 years since the birth of Nikola Vaptsarov

On December 7 will be celebrated 103 years since the birth of great Bulgarian poet Nikola Vaptsarov.

To My Wife

Sometimes I’ll come when you’re asleep,
An unexpected visitor.
Don’t leave me outside in the street.
Don’t bar the door!
I’ll enter quietly, softly sit.
And gaze upon you in the dark.
Then when my eyes have gazed their fill,
I’ll kiss you and depart.

Nikola Vaptsarov
