Work as if thou art to live a hundred years, and pray to God as if thou art to die to-morrow.

THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

National proverbs: Serbia

heat 023

One day the gift arrives — outside your door,
Left on a windowsill, inside the mailbox,
Or in the hallway, far too large to lift.

Your postman shrugs his shoulders, the police
Consult a statute, and the cat miaows.
No name, no signature, and no address,

Only, “To you, my dearest one, my all …”
One day it all fits snugly on your lap,
Then fills the backyard like afternoon in spring.
