END OF THE LINE

by Alex Valente.

Original Italian by Paula Schöpf/Bloom (Sinti poet, 1953 – )

The Sinti story has ended
The violins go quiet
The guitars have lost their voice
Young women no longer dancing
They have no more feet to dance
The fires have died
The night is cold
The mist has melted the Sinti hearts
The earth was quenched with Sinti blood
No more caravans
In the green outskirts
No more violins falling in love
No more flowers between brown hair
