Warning - Antun Branko Šimić

Man, be careful
not to walk small
under the stars.

May your whole body
be filled with
the dim light of the stars!

To have no regrets
when with the last glances
you part with the stars!

In your final hour
instead of dust
pass whole to the stars.

Antun Branko Šimić (1898 – 1925) Croatia
