The Giraffe

Жираф

Today I can see that your features are strikingly sad,
Your arms on your knees are as thin as dandelion stalks.
But listen, in far-away lands that surround lake Chad
A graceful giraffe softly walks.

A slender and delicate beauty he rightfully owns,
And magical ornaments run through the flanks of his hide,
That only the moon can compare to, when coolly it dawns
And bounces and swings on the surface of lakes open wide.

His colors resemble the sails of a distant frigate,
And smoothly he runs, like a cheerful bird in its flight.
At sunset he stands by a grotto’s marmoreal gate
And marvelous visions replenish the world in his sight.

Mysterious lands have possessed me in legend and song:
There was a black maiden that ravished the heart of a king.
But you have been breathing this nebulous air for too long,
Apart from its moisture you dare not believe in a thing.

And how will I tell you of gardens in emeralds clad,
Of towering palm-tress and smells of unthinkable weeds?
You’ve started to cry now. But listen, in far-away Chad
An exquisite-looking giraffe to his grotto proceeds.

Wanderer, far from his homeland, / You are poor and you are alone, / For the time, deprived of listening / To the music of mother tongue. / / Yet here nature is so magnificent, / That you're not entirely lost. / Singing birds on the trees around you - / Would you call it a fo...

Poet

I heard from the garden a woman singing, / But I... I gazed at the moon. / / My thoughts never wondered about that woman - / Since I fell in love with the moon. / / No stranger am I to the beautiful goddess - / I do sense her gaze in return. / / And neither tree branches o...

Home

The merciless fire devoured / The house of my childhood games. / / I needed to overcome sorrow, / And sailed on the golden-mast boat. / / I played on my beautiful flute to / The high rising moon in the sky. / / The moon, by my singing, got saddened, / And covered hersel...
