Носоріг

Носорог

Мчаться мавпи, наче п’яні,
з диким криком по ліані,
що звисає низько, низько,
чуєш стукіт - тупіт ніг?
Значить це, що близько, близько
від тебе тобі не знаний
та жахливий носоріг.

Бачиш це усіх хвилює,
чуєш тупіт? Безумовно,
якщо буйвіл й той лягає,
відступає глибше в бруд.
Нетутешнє полюбляєш?
не чекай на порятунок!
Заховатись ніде тут.

Підніми у гору руки,
з гімном щасття і розлуки,
погляд в матових туманах
думки в далечінь зведуть,
та з країн давно вже знаних
нам невидимі фелуки
за тобою припливуть.

There are no seven diamond seals to close / the eternal gates of God's great paradise / it has no tempting charms, no beckoning glow / and to the people remains unrecognized. / / a doorway in a wall long since forsaken / a mass of stones and moss and nothing more. / nearby, a beggar, ...

A portrait of a man

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...
