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.

From "Remembrance" / / Only serpents let their skin be fallen / And a soul - all grown up and old. / We, alas, change an eternal soul, / Leaving body in eternal hold. / / Oh, remembrance, power, she-giant, / You direct a horse-life with a bridle, / You will tell me all these men ...

The Other One

I wait for, full of thoughts provoking, / But not a gay and pretty wife, / Not the sincere and gentle talking / About the old time and life. / / And not a mistress: I am bored / With languor whispers, languor looks, / And with delights, a lot and more, / And more tortures that I ...

The Prophets

There are the modern prophets here, / Though altars totally are felt, / Their eyes are very deep and clear - / In them, the flame of future set. / / For them, the calls of fame are alien, / They’re pressed by mass and depth of words, / All they are frightened, pale and sulle...

Reader Of Books

My dear friend, and I have tried to find / My paradise in serfdom of a soul, / I liked them all - the odd ways of a mind / Without hopes, or memories, or goals. / / Promptly to glide along the brooks of lines, / To enter into straits of chapters, slow, / To watch a foam on the flows&...

The Right Way

Birth of the word is by agony molded, / Through earthly life it is quietly going, / It is a stranger, which drinks from the golden / Pitcher the drops of the savages’ mourning. / / Go to Nature! The Nature is hostile, / All here is frightening, all is in fullness, / ...

Shame

May be, in my previous a-being, / I’ve cut the throats of my Mom and Dad, / If in this one - Lord of all the living! - / I have been doomed to suffering like that. / / If I call for dogs of mine, aloud, / Or just try my own horse to see, / Not obeying all my signs and shout...
