The Founders

Основатели

Romulus and Remus went up a hill,
a wild and silent hill.
Said Romulus, "Here there'll be a city.
Said Remus, "A city like the sun."

Said Romulus, "We found our ancient honor
by grace of the stars."
Said Remus, "The past is dead,
let it be forgotten. Consider the future.

Said Romulus, "Here we'll put the circus,
and here our house, open to everyone."
Said Remus, "But the tombs, the tombs
must be nearer the house."

Remember the palace of giants, / The pool, full of silvery fish, / Alleys of planes, the highest, / And keeps made of huge stone bricks; / / As my golden horse at the towers / Was prancing, so proud and strong, / And gems decorated his harness / In patterns of delicate work. / / ...

The ship

"What d' you see in my eyes, slightly sparkling, / In my look, hazed with opaque mist?" / "There I saw the sea's deepest darkness / With a big sunken beautiful ship. / / That fine ship... More glorious and braver / None had seen over deep of the sea. / Its high masts under windbreath ...
