Sretena Anna Novic Poetry

1. Kingdom

2. Let my ashes be returned to the moon

3. Step by step of motion

4. On some staircase

5. Does the old age starts when we stop dreaming?

6. My prayer is a swanlike winged dog

7. A life passes by in front of me

8. Who is going to judge

9. I live in an armor of fear

10. In the mirror of life nothing is clear

11. I empower you to build a world and take a new road

12. If I ever die

13. Everything has its time and hour

14. A Wall

15. Awakening

16. If you don’t wake up one day you’ll be sorry

17. My painful heart is cracked long ago

18. When the shadow of the last resurrection


On some staircase

On some staircase
in some house,
in some town without name,
a child is crying.

Adults tell the child Stop it!
and What’s the matter?
And how long is it going to squeak,
and bother us, this little Ungrateful?

Because, the adults cannot stand sobbing.

It remains them of the staircase
of their childhood,
in a distant and long ago nonexistent
houses and towns.

And then, the child stops crying
and all tell him Good boy!
And, See, isn’t it better
to laugh instead to cry?

And the child cannot endure sobbing
in the presence of adults.
But, the child’s inside sobbing
continues all his life.
