Translations of Selected Lyrics of Persone from Esperanto

By Sahand Rabbani


The Sky

I lie in bed alone.
A nearby engine whistles.
My breath I can no longer hear,
For now it has surely forsaken me.
I float beneath the ceiling:
A most interesting perspective.
Hark! a sound is heard:
A promising alternative.

At the tunnel's end,
An infernal gleam from the sky.

He welcomes me to his home:
The master of the new land.
He decrees by his thunderous voice
The verdict of truth.
Electric shock to the heart:
It shakes and pulls me.
The demon is far,
Though I doubt myself now.

At the tunnel's end,
An infernal gleam from the sky:
A soft yet striking light
Drives me to its source.

La cxielo

Mi kusxas ununura sur la lit'
Apude fajfas la masxin'
Mian spiron mi ne povas auxdi plu
Gxi sxajne jam forlasis min
Sxvebas mi sub plafon'
Plej interesa perspektiv'
Jen auxdeblas la son'
Promeso pri alternativ'

Estas fin' de la tunel'
Infera bril' el la cxiel'

Li bonvenigas min al sia hejm'
La mastro de la nova ter'
Eldiras li per fajra fulmotondra vocx'
Verdikton pri la sola ver'
Elektra sxok' al la kor'
Gxi skuas kaj min tiras re
La demon' estas for
Mi pensas nun ke tamen ne

Estas fin' de la tunel'
Infera bril' el la cxiel'
Dolcxa lum' alloga hel'
Gxi pelas min al sia cel'
