Jo i vosaltres

Я и Вы

Si, ho se, no soc pas com vosaltres,
es d’un altre pais que jo vinc,
i m’agrada no pas la guitarra,
sino el so de les flautes salvatges.

ES als dracs que llegeixo poemes,
a nuvols i cascades. No vaig
per salons, per estances, llegint
als vestits i a les jaquetes fosques.

Jo estimo com l’arab al desert
que s’atansa a la font i en beu l’aigua,
no pas com el cavaller d’un quadreque mira les estrelles i espera.

I no penso morir-me en un llit
entremig d’un metge i un notari,
prefereixo una escletxa salvatge
ben al fons d’un clot d’heures espesses.

Perque no vull entrar al paradis
dels protestants, pulcre i sense enigmes,
sino on el bandoler, el turmentat,
la pecadora cridaran: «Alca’t!»

In my delirium, only the endlessness / Of some sharp lines plagues me, / And the bell incessantly tolls / As a clock, striking eternity. / / It seems to me, that after death it’s how, / With an agonising hope of resurrection, / The eyes get fixed on the surrounding murk, / See...

Childhood

As a child, I liked big, / Honey-scented meadows, / Groves, dry grass, / And in the grass, bovine horns. / / Every wayside shrub shouted / To me: "I’m playing with you, / Pass me by carefully / And you shall know who I am!" / / Only the savage autumn wind, / Howling, wo...

African Night

Midnight descended, impenetrable darkness, / Only the river glistens from the moon, / And across the river, an unknown tribe, / Lighting its fires, makes noise. / / Tomorrow we shall meet and find out / Who is to become the ruler of these parts; / They are helped by a black stone, / ...

Giraffe

Your eyes look at me with especial sadness today, / Your arms give the knees an especially fragile embrace. / Now listen, along Lake Chad’s shore, far away, / An exquisite giraffe makes its pace. / / He’s gracefully slender, with heavenly joy he is blessed, / His skin is ado...

Memory

Only serpents ever shed their skin, / To give their souls enough time to grow old. / We, alas, are not like snakes within: / It's not our body changing, but our soul. / / Mem’ry, with your giantess’ hand, / Drag me through this life as by a halter, / Telling tales about th...

Andrei Rublev

It is my firm and sweet conviction, / Directed by monastic art, / This woman’s face is heaven’s depiction / To Promised One by Maker’s heart. / / Her nose, like tree trunk, tall and slender, / Unfurls the arches of her brows / Above expression stern yet tender, / L...
