The Sava and Danube Confluence.

The Sava and Danube Confluence

 Rosy radiance
 arises from Zemun
 a swimmer
 from the south comes
 a dialogue starts
 on the spot where two rivers embrace
 this is not a fugitive
 or a line of sufferers
 but a deep foundation dug
 the one carrying the stone
 is Stephan
 the founder.

Translated by Mirjana N. Radovanov-Mataric, 2010
