I`m dreaming that both of us dead…

Мне снилось

I'm dreaming that both of us dead.
We're lying — so peaceful for ever.
Two white heavy coffins of lead
Put down together.

And when did we say that «enough»?
What for then and what means the trying?
But strange that's not aching my heart,
My heart is not crying.

The powerless feelings so morbid,
The motionless thoughts so unearthly.
And lips of yours are not enthralling
Though ever so perfect.

It happened and both of us dead.
We're lying — so peaceful for ever.
Two white heavy coffins of lead
Put down together.

This dream of mine is arrogant and plain: / To grasp the oar, to jump into the races, / To swindle sluggish time by switching faces, / Caressing lips that never are the same; / / And in old age adopt Christ's legacy: / Debase my head and sprinkle it with ashes / And hold salvation's b...

Groves Of Palms And Thickets Of Wild Aloe...

Groves of palms and thickets of wild aloe, / Shallow brook is silvery and dull, / Endless blue sky dome spanned over fallow, / Sky is golden from sun rays and lull. / / Heart of mine, what else do you desire? / Is a bliss a fairy tale or lie? / Why do you give in yourself entire / T...

She Who Scatters The Stars

You're not always haughty and estranged, / Your desire for me stays unchanged, / / Calmly, softly, gently, as in dream, / You, like vision, sometimes come to me. / / Braided strand is on your forehead tanned, / I am not allowed to kiss this strand, / / Your large eyes are kindle...

Death

Gentle, pale, in ashen-white attire / Thou appeared with caressing eyes. / Thou was different when I met thee prior / In swords' clang, in trumpet battle cries. / / And thou seemed to be a golden-drunk who, / Having bared a sparkling breast in spate, / In the midst of bloody war fog, ...
