Theater

Театр

All of us — righteous and sinners,
Born in prison, raised at the altar,
All of us are funny actors
In the theater of the Creator.

The Lord sits on His throne,
Merrily follows the show.
Brightly on His sumptuous gown
Sparkles and golden stars glow.

Oh, how easy and pleasant
Is the empyrean staging!
Mary the Virgin is content,
Finds the libretto engaging:

— Hamlet? He has to be pallid.
Cain? He should be audacious…
Audience takes in angelic
Shiny victorious trumpets.

God leaning forward is watching,
He is caught up in the drama…
Pity if Cain is crying,
Hamlet will have blissful moments!

That goes against His intentions!
To avoid deviations,
God will entrust the production
Into Pain's hands, a deaf titan.

Now the pain's shooting higher
Cunningly webbing and freely,
Those who choose to retire,
Are castigated severely.

Tortures grow out of proportion
Fear and dismay — even greater;
What if continues His celebration
In the theater of the Creator.

So Adam grew tired of his dancing and song, / By Tree in the Garden he slumbered unknowing. / Above him the stars in the heavens were glowing, / And lilac the shadows o’er meadows did throng, / And sleepy, his spirit above them it hovered, / And all of a sudden by nightmare was bothe...

Olga

"Helga, Helga!" shouted the fighters / In the battlefield and wrestle stage / With their brawny arms, with fierce bright eyes, / Crashing sacra in feral combat rage. / / "Olga, Olga!" screamed the honey-haired / Drevlians inside the burning bath / Scratching walls ...

Drunken dervish

Nightingales in cypress branches and the moon above the lake, / Raven stone, marble stone, drunk till earth began to quake. / Loud song of bottle throat taught me in a sudden gust, / "All the world's a glance of friend's face, all the rest's a shadow cast." / / Long before the d...

The Name

When the earth was watching Lord with tremor / Handling its demanded overhaul, / Name restrained the sun from daily travel, / Name tore down Jericho's wall. / / Eagle's wings went paralyzed entire, / Stars fled to the crescent terrified / When the Name a-swam like salmon fire / In ...
