Les descendants de Caïn

Потомки Каина

Il nous a dit vrai, l'esprit triste et austère
Qui prit le nom de l'étoile du matin:
«N'ayez pas peur du châtiment divin
Goûtez du fruit et soyez dieux sur la terre».

Pour les vieux s'ouvrirent tous les mystères,
Pour les jeunes hommes tous les possibles chemins,
Pour les jeunes filles les fruits ambrés et fins
Et les licornes blanches comme la lumière.

Mais pourquoi succombons-nous affaiblis
Comme si Quelqu'un nous tenait dans l'oubli,
De l'ancienne tentation nous voyons la terreur profonde,

Lorsqu'une main par hasard, parfois
Prend deux tiges, deux brins, deux bouts de bois
En les mettant en croix pour une seconde?

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 ...

I`m dreaming that both of us dead…

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. / ...

Unperturbed and indifferent sun contemplated the planet…

Unperturbed and indifferent sun contemplated the planet / There all was infested with terror and eaten by rot, / There rocks in the distance appeared a huge shaggy dog, / There black boiling copper spewed out collapsing volcanoes. / Was the night of the world. / / Unexpectedly rolled i...

Their souls` love had been born beside the sea…

Their souls' love had been born beside the sea, / In sacred groves of virginal naiads, / Whose songs, arguing with the play of wind, / With strings, ring joyfully, eternally. / / Great oracle... the majesty of man / Has never been more strange and more severe, / The closed lips and th...
