Era escuro
(It was dark)

Ladino, Sephardic

Era escuro como la media noche,
Quando la luna esclariendo 'stava,
Todo callado, todo 'stava'n silencio,
Como la nuve'n la escuridad.

Miseravle, por qui vienes agora?
Arecordarme del mal que yo pasi?
Arecordarme de toda la mi vida?
Estas palavras yo le havlĂ­.

It was dark, almost midnight
as the moon was rising,
all calm, all bathed in stillness,
like snow in obscurity.

Miserable one! Why do you come now?
To make me recall the harm that I suffered?
To make me recall my whole life?!
Those were the words that I spoke to him.
