Under Poet

Под рукой уверенной поэта…

Under poet's fingers, fast and thin,
Strings were fluttering with easy, gentle sound,
Strings were golden, as the bands, around
Wrists of glum and unrestricted Queen.

Calls of passion made the air drunk,
And the summer lightning was in hurry…
Not in vain, ranged those armlets, starry,
On the wrists of Mistress, pale and blank.

And the looks were burning not in vain:
Sovereign satisfied with Slave desire,
Halls were decorated with a lyre,
Hangmen tore the poet's eyes away.

The Savor said: he's blessed, who has the maimed legs / And envy is a fate of him, who's blind or begs; / They will be living over stars of earthy nights, / They will be made the heavens' faithful knights, / The most famous of the famous brothers... / Amen! I will agree. But, what about ot...

The Gates of Paradise

The eternal entrance into Eden / Is not locked with seven precious seals; / It has no charms nor light of heaven, / And the people don't know that it is. / / It's a doorway in a wall forgotten - / Stones, moss and nothing more else, / Near stands a beggar; and the rotten, / Keys are...

It Was Not Once

It was not only once, it will go this way, / In our fight, which is deaf and destroying: / As it happened before, you rebuffed me today - / To return, like a slave, by the morning. / / Therefore, don’t be stressed, my inimical friend, / My friend - enemy, caught by black laces, ...
