Diletant / Dilettante

! This post was written long ago. What you're reading is not necessarily how I feel about things in 2017. This blog was started by an 18-year-old in 2001. Please, keep that in mind before you freak out.


Dolazio je noću i kad je padala kiša;
jednom, drugi, treći, četvrti, peti put
i onda više nikad nije došao.
Za rođendan mu je poslala vejavicu,
sa željom da se malo isprepada i naguta snega.

No, on je samo rekao sledeće:
"Ova oluja ti nije dovoljno dobra,
nisi je dobro pripremila,



He'd come at night and when it was raining;
once, twice, three, four, five times,
And no more.
For birthday, she sent him a snowstorm,
So he'd get scared and swallow some snow.

But, he only said the following:
"This storm is not good enough,
You did not prepare it well,
You diletante.

*Thanks to Cristina for spelling correction! D'oh.

    [I would say it's "dilettante" in both Italian and English. Feel free to delete this once you've checked it out.]
