Зо копища змієва…

Из логова змиева

Зо копища змієва,
зі самого Києва,
за жінку дістав чарівницю,
мав думку - забавницю,
гадав - своєнравницю,
пташинку собі витівницю.

Покличеш - наморщиться,
обнімеш - топорщиться,
Як місяць - то й чине журитись,
і зойкіт - стогнання,
як при похованні
когось там, - і хоче топитись.

Кажу їй: «Хрещеному,
тобою привченому
неможна прийтись не до двору.
Візьми лють, не стій,
знеси в Чорторий,
на грішну неси Лису гору.

Мовчить - тільки щулиться,
моя ти розумниця.
В усім її шкода, затятую,
як пташку підбиту,
березу підриту
над прірвою, Богом заклятую.

The games

Council's kind, on a bloody arena / for the third day the games are not over, / and completely got crazy hyenas, / breathe with ancient spite anacondas. / / And the elephants, bears and tigers / drunk of blood, battlers ready for sparrings, / bull is strong and experienced fighter - /...

My Thoughts

Why did they come to me my thoughts together? / Like thieves at night in gloomy dusk of suburbs, / Like kites they grim and sinister, they whether / are here for the vengeance fierce and savage? / / The hope has left, the dreams have fleed forever, / My eyes have opened in a great excit...

In the skies

Days have flashed in the golden inflame, / And she-bear was fleeing at night, / Overtake her, prince, overtake, / Lasso her, to the saddle her try. / / Lasso her, to the saddle her try / To strap, in the blue tower at home / Point out at she-bear-night / To your giant Herculean dog....
