Artwork description:

This painting is inspired by the poetry of a Bulgarian poet Dimcho Debelyanov.
To Return to Your Father’s House
To return to your father’s house once more,
when evening starts to gently fade
and quiet night in quiet breast will store
ease for the sorrowful and the dismayed.
You’ve cast black torpor’s heavy load,
which dismal days to you imparted
with your timid steps to wake in the yard
a timid joy for the guest awaited.

For the old one to meet you at the door
and to lay your forehead in her feeble shoulder,
wrapped in the warmth of her smile once more
long time repeating mother, mother.
To gently enter that well known room,
your very last shelter and mooring.
to whisper quiet words into the calm
with tired eyes on the old icon poring:
I came to wait the gentle end of day
as my sun had completed its journey

Oh secret cries of a sorrowful stray
in futile recall of mother and country.

translated by Christopher Buxton
