Z miest bežal som, kde rastie les…

Я в лес бежал из городов…

Z miest bežal som, kde rastie les,
v samote skryť sa pred davom,
k modlitbe spínam ruky dnes,
chystám sa plakať vzlykavo.

Sám so sebou som a je už čas,
keď potrebujem si oddýchnuť.
Nemilosrdný, slepý jas
mi zjedol mozog, spálil hruď.

Som lotor, hriešna nádoba,
Boh bojovať mi silu dal,
ľúbil som pravdu národa,
no rozšliapal som ideál…

Bojovať som však neskúsil,
sťa otroka ma premkol strach
a so slovami «nemám síl»
som zhasil plameň svojich snáh.

Som lotor, hriešna nádoba,
odpusť mi, Bože na nebi,
a duši v mojich útrobách
tiež odpusť, nech ťa velebí…

Sú ľudia, ktorým planie zrak,
ktorí chcú dobro, a nie zlo,
tým odovzdaj svoj svätý znak —
boj pre nich je vždy lákadlo.

Jedinú prosbu, Bože, mám,
pomôž mi v mojom súžení,
pre chorú dušu prosíkam
o pokoj nezaslúžený.

Remember the palace of giants…

Remember the palace of giants, / The pool, full of silvery fish, / Alleys of planes, the highest, / And keeps made of huge stone bricks; / / As my golden horse at the towers / Was prancing, so proud and strong, / And gems decorated his harness / In patterns of delicate work. / / ...

The ship

"What d' you see in my eyes, slightly sparkling, / In my look, hazed with opaque mist?" / "There I saw the sea's deepest darkness / With a big sunken beautiful ship. / / That fine ship... More glorious and braver / None had seen over deep of the sea. / Its high masts under windbreath ...

A fragment of «Tale of Kings»

Once a dark horseman oh a black horse came / He was clad in a black velvet cloak, full of pride. / And his look was so dreadful, as a town aflame, / And so glaring as a flash in the night. / / Curly hair upon shoulders like serpents did twist, / And his voice was a song of the earth and...


Today, I can see that your glance is especially sad, / And hands are especially thin and the hair if up fluff. / Hey, listen, as far as in Africa, down at lake Chad / Is walking a graceful Giraffe. / / He's owing that elegance, slender and languor he is, / Such beautiful patterns are sh...

The Gates of Paradise

There are no seven diamond seals to close / the eternal gates of God's great paradise / it has no tempting charms, no beckoning glow / and to the people remains unrecognized. / / a doorway in a wall long since forsaken / a mass of stones and moss and nothing more. / nearby, a beggar, ...

A portrait of a man

His eyes are lightless underground lakes, / Abandoned castles of the ancient kings. / Marked with the sign of the eternal shame / Of that, the Other One, he never speaks. / The deepest wound, his mouth, dark and purple, / Made with a blade borne of the deadly poison; / And it is sad and ...
