The Giraffe

Жираф

You are sadder, today: I can see.
And your arms, wrapped around your knees, are thinner.
But listen: far far away, near Lake Chad,
a delicate giraffe grazes up and down.

He is blessed with sinuous beauty and with happiness,
and his hide is stamped with a magic design
that only the moon dares to challenge,
splitting, rocking white on the waters of wide lakes.

From far off he seems like colored sails on a ship,
he runs like a smooth-flying gay-flying bird.
When he hides in a marble cave, at sunset,
earth sees wonders, I know it does.

I know cheerful stories of mysterious lands,
about lovely black girls, about passionate young chiefs,
but you have breathed too much heavy fog,
you refuse to believe in anything but rain.

And how shall I tell you about tropical gardens,
about slender palms, about the perfume of unimaginable grasses
You're crying ? Listen ... far far away, near Lake Chad,
a delicate giraffe grazes up and down.

Me and You

Yes, I know, we are not together, / From another terrain I’m hewn, / Won’t allow the guitar to tether, / I prefer wild zurna’s tune. / / I don’t visit the halls and salons / Where an audience sits in black / I’m reciting my lines to dragons, / Waterfall...

No, there has been no transformation / Of nature, poor and unalloyed, / But only bright illumination / With untold beauty fills the void. / / And so it’s probably quite certain / Hangs human flesh on fraying cord, / When cry from darkness rents the curtain, / In judgement&rsqu...

Death

Fragile, pallid, dressed in ashen vesture, / You appeared with kindness in your eyes. / Quite unlike your previous meeting’s gesture - / Howling trump and slashing rapier’s cries. / / Overcome with gold’s intoxication, / Bared you thus your scintillating breast. / T...
