Iš to pasaulio nelaimingo…

Синяя звезда

Iš to pasaulio nelaimingo,
Kur stingdė kraują liūdesys,
Mane ištraukė stebuklingas
Ir keistas tavo žavesys.

Ir numiriau… mačiau, kaip plinta
Plevenanti balta liepsna,
Ir mėlyna žvaigždė susipindo
Ir skaudžiai akino mane.

Ak, vertė sielą atsinaujint
Ir kūną sklindanti giesmė,
Ne, tai giedojo tavo kraujas —
Skambėjo visa ko esmė.

Kažras man saldų kvapą sviedė,
Saldesnis buvo jis tada
Už kvapą net lelijos žiedo,
Kurs žydi angelų sode.

Bet greitai visa tai praėjo,
Sugrįžo žemė paprasta,
Ir prieš mane tu suspindėjai
Staga lyg paukštė sužeista.

“Kenčiu”, — sakei  ir balsas stingo,
Bet kaip aš tau galiu padėt,
Jei pagaliau žinau skausmingai,
Kad tu – tik mėlyna žvaigždė

Groves of palms and aloe-covered slopes. / Silver mat is water of a creek. / Skies are infinite and blue in their scopes. / Skies are golden with a glowing streak. / / What, my heart, is left of your aspiring? / Has the happiness belied your hymns? / Why so easy do you let admiring / ...

You shall recall me yet, and more than once...

You shall recall me yet, and more than once - / Recall my world, uncommon and exciting: / A clumsy world, fashioned of flame and songs, / But, unlike others, wholly undesigning. / / It could have been yours, too, but no. It had / Proven too little, or perhaps too vast. / My verse, it...


Today I can see that your gaze is especially sad; / Your hands are especially slender, encircling your knees. / But listen to this: far away, far away, near Lake Chad / A giraffe paces elegantly. / / A figure of grace and a lifetime of bliss are his boon, / And a magical pattern adorns...


This evening the look in your eyes is especially sad, / And your arms are especially vine-like entwining your calf. / So listen to me: far away, on the shores of Lake Chad / There roams an exquisite giraffe. / / He is gracefully slender and gifted with bliss from within, / And none on ...

Elephant Calf

My love to you is now a little calfy, / An elephant born in Berlin or Paris / Who tramples with his feet that are all water / About the rooms of a managerie owner. / / Don't try to offer him French buns or bagels, / Don't try to offer him large heads of cabbage / For he can only eat a...
