Zvonko Taneski writes


I am a Macedonian folklore lover
Over there one awaits – even to the grave.

I will wait for you 100 years
And each day shall be June
And you shall watch
The others fall asleep
Ahead of us
So that you can tell me
About your own sons, and me to you about my daughters
And about the two Persian cats with big furry tails

I will wait for you 100 years,
But not any longer than that.

Tortoiseshell and Tortoiseshell-and-White Persians -- William Luker, Jr.
