Baladė

Баллада

Dovanojo Liuciferis man ristunus penkis
Ir dar zieda auksini, kur rubinas brangus,
Kad galeciau i gilia bedugne nuskrist,
Kad akims atsivertu jaunas tyras dangus.

Prunkste, trype kanopomis mano zirgai,
Aplankyt tolimiausius  krastus kviesdami,
Ir maniau as, kad saule vienam man ilgai
Svies, kaip ziedas auksinis brangia akimi.

Daug ugniniu dienu, daug zvaigzdetu naktu
As klajojau begale bekraste zeme,
Asjuokiausi is siausmo zirgu nelemtu
Ir gerejausi ziedo auksinio zaisme.

Sviete proto virsune zutim ledine,
Bet as perliejau zirgus rimbu, kad greiciau
Jie uznestu i sita virsune mane,
Liudno veido mergaite tenai pamaciau.

Josios balsas skambejo uz smuika tyliau,
Keistas  zvilgsnis tai vijo, tai kviete vardu,
Ir menulio mergaitei as zieda daviau
Uz netikra seseli kasu palaidu.

Ir kvatodamas skardziai, prakeikes mane,
Atidare Liuciferis man i tamsa duris,
Dave sestaji zirga, pasodino balne,
Susnabzdejo i ausi: vardas jo Liudesys.

Pre-Memory

So this is all of life! Whirling, singing. / Oceans, metropolises, deserts, / A desultory reflection / Of what is lost forever. / / A flame rages, trumpets trumpet, / And chesnut-colored horses race, / Then the agitating lips / Of happiness, it seems repeat. / / And sorrow and ...

A Baby Elephant

Right now my love for you is a baby elephant / Born in Berlin or in Paris, / And treading with its cushioned feet / Around the zoo director's house. / / Do not offer it French pastries, / Do not offer it cabbage heads, / It can eat only sections of tangerines, / Or lumps of sugar an...

Words

In the old days, when God cast down / His gaze upon the just created earth, / Words stopped the sun, / Words tore down whole towns. / / The terror-striken stars / huddled round the moon / When words, like pink flaming tongues / Floated down through air. / / The lower levels of ...

On that faraway star, upon Venus...

On that faraway star, upon Venus, / Where the Sun burns golden and brightly. / And on Venus, ah... upon Venus, / The blue leaves of trees they waft lightly. / / And loudly the waters they sing / The river, the fountain, the fall / Their noon song of freedom they ring / That lights u...

A dream

I woke up and moaned with a shudder, / My nightmare haunts me again: / You were still in love with another, / And he caused you anguish and pain. / / I escaped my house in the darkness - / Thus a killer runs from a block, / Watched and mocked by shadowy lanterns - / Hungry wild beas...

You will recall me

You will recall me - likely, more than once, / And you'll recall my world, both strange and dreamy, / The funny world where songs and fires dance, / And yet - the only one that's not deceiving. / / It could have been your chosen world as well. / Perhaps it was too much for you, too litt...
