VOS MOTS


À Besnik Avdiaj


Mon Petit Prince illyrien,
Vos mots tombent sur les fleurs fraîches
Et sur les pétales luisants de mon âme antique
Avec une élégance si extrême !

Sources initiales de la splendeur de nos vies,
Lois définitives de notre éternelle amitié,
Hauts massifs d’une ontologie
Secrète, itinérante, intrépide
Et magique !

Vos mots !

Ils sont cette intangible joie intime
Qui émane des choses simples et silencieuses,
Cette félicité distillée à l’infini
Aussi spontanée
Que les battements légers d’un cœur d’azur !

Vos mots !

Ô suave Beauté des lèvres vierges,
Comme tu connais les sinueux sentiers fleuris
Qui mènent à l’essence même de l’essence !

Ô κοινωνία,
Sublime communion entre
Les Idées et le Bien.

Vos mots !

Ô mon Petit Prince illyrien
Comme tout est transparent en amour !

Athanase Vantchev de Thracy

Haskovo, le 20 mai 2012

Je dédie ce poème au très jeune et très talentueux poète de Kosovo, Besnik Avdiaj (15 ans)

Glose :

Illyrien, ne (adj.) : qui appartient aux Illyriens, peuple protohistorique habitants des Balkans, et dont la langue est classifiée par l'intermédiaire de la langue albanaise comme une langue indo-européenne.

Ontologie (n.f.) : branche de la philosophie concernant l'étude de l'être, de ses modalités, de ses propriétés. En philosophie, l'ontologie (du grec ὤν, ὄντος / ôn, ontos « étant », participe présent du verbe εἰμί / eïmi « être ») est l'étude de l'être en tant qu'être (définition proposée par Aristote), c'est-à-dire l'étude des propriétés générales de tout ce qui est.

Κοινωνία, / koinônia : mot grec. D’après Platon, ce terme exprime la communion entre les Idées et le Bien.

 

ENGLISH :


YOUR WORDS


For Besnik Avdiaj



My Little Illyrian Prince,

Your words fall onto the fresh flowers

And the glistening petals of my ancient soul

With such an extreme elegance!



First sources of the splendour of our lives,

Final laws of our eternal friendship,

High plateaux of an ontology that is

Secret, itinerant, intrepid

And magical!



Your words!



They are the intangible inner joy

That emanates from simple, quiet things,

They are

This infinitely distilled happiness

As spontaneous

As a lightly beating heart of azure blue!



Your words!



O sweet virgin lips of Beauty,

How well you know the flowery winding paths

Which lead to the very essence of the essence!



O kοινωνία,

Sublime communion between

Ideas and the Good.



Your words!



O my Little Illyrian Prince,

How everything is transparent in love!



Athanase  Vantchev de Thracy

I dedicate this poem to the very young and very talented Kosovan poet, Besnik Avdiaj (age 15)


Notes:



Illyrian : belonging to the Illyrians,  proto-historic inhabitants of the Balkans whose language is classified via the Albanian language as an Indo-European language.



Ontology : a branch of philosophy concerning the study of being, its modalities and its properties. In philosophy, ontology (from Greek ὤν, ὄντος / ôn, ontos "being", present participle of the verb εἰμί / eimi "to be") is the study of being as being (the definition proposed by Aristotle), that is to say the study of the general properties of all that exists.



Κοινωνία, / koinonia: Greek word. According to Plato, this word expresses the communion between Ideas and the Good.
