П’ять биків

Пять быков

Процював я п’ять років у пана,
випасав у степах його коней,
і за це я отримав у нього
п’ять волів, до ярма вже привченних.
Одного з них зарізано левом.
Я знайшов на траві левів послід,-
треба краще крааль боронити,
треба з ночі палити багаття.
Другий раптом побіг, бо сказився,
дзвінкою ужалений осою.
Я блукав п’ять діб в диких хащах
та ні де вола не побачив.
Двом волам підсипав сусіда
прямо в їжу отруйного зілля,
і воли валилися долу,
а язик ставав у них синім.
Тож останнього взяв й сам зарізав,
щоб було мені чим святкувати
у годину, як дім запалав у сусіда,
там горланив господар, він зв’язаний був.

Giraffe

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...

The Sixth Sense

It's priceless - wine, that falls in love with us, / And bread, that sits for us in oven, - priceless treasure, / And priceless is a woman that, at last, / After all torments, we possess for pleasure. / / But what to do with clear light of dawn, / When sky's, like heaven, peaceful, deep...

Manlius

Manlius was thrown down, / The ruling few preserved their wealth, / Their power remains as dour, / As the Tarpeian Rock itself. / / Like the waves Rome was roughing, / Cries were cutting through the gloom, / But the man was gently laughing, / Falling down to meet his doom. / / ...

She

I know a woman, full of silence, / Her bitter weariness from words, / Dwells in mysterious, blinking eyelids / Their widened pupils, secret worlds. / Her soul is greedily wide open / To copper music of sweet verse. / To life, that’s worldly, pleasant often, / She’s deaf and...
