בּוֹנֶה עִיר וּמִגְדָּל יִמְעַד פֶּתַע
וְיִפֹּל בִּבְהִילוּת מִבְּעִיטָה.
וּבִשְּׁאוֹל תַּחְתִּיּוֹת נֶפֶשׁ מֵתָה
תְּקַלֵּל אֶת שִׁגְעוֹן גַּדְלוּתָהּ.

כֹּל מַחְרִיב וְהוֹרֵס - יִמָּחֵץ הוּא,
יִקָּבֵר בֵּין כָּפִיס לַקּוֹרָה.
יִנֹּטְשֵׁהוּ הָאֵל, עֵת חָפֵץ הוּא
אַךְ לִזְעֹק אֶת סִבְלוֹ הַנּוֹרָא.

כֹּל סַיָּר מְעָרוֹת טוֹעֵם - דֶּרֶךְ,
מְיֻמָּן כֵּיצַד לְהִשָּׁמֵר,
יִוָּדַע בָּאֵימָה-אַחַר-פֶּרֶךְ
בָּאִישׁוֹן מְצַמְרֵר שֶׁל נָמֵר.

מִגּוֹרָל דָּמִים לֹא אִוָּשַׁע לִי -
זֹאת גּוֹזֶרֶת עָלַי אַדְמָתִי.
אַךְ אֶזְכֹּר אֶת הַזְּכוּת הַקְּדֻשָּׁה לִי -
זְכוּת נִשְׂגֶּבֶת לִבְחֹר אֶת מוֹתִי.

The Choice

He who builds the tower shall fall / Frightening will be his flight / And at the bottom of the well that is the world / He will curse his maddened mind / / The destroyer will be crushed / Lying under the ruined walls / Abandoned by the all seeing God / Screaming, his pain he will cu...


The one, who lies in a grave, / Hears wondrous jingling / And can feel the scent / Of the whitest lily. / / The one, who lies in a grave / Sees the light eternal, / Angels’ snow-white shade, / Their feathers’ murmur. / / There, you are dying / And your hands are c...

Remember the palace of giants…

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 ...

A fragment of «Tale of Kings»

Once a dark horseman oh a black horse came / He was clad in a black velvet cloak, full of pride. / And his look was so dreadful, as a town aflame, / And so glaring as a flash in the night. / / Curly hair upon shoulders like serpents did twist, / And his voice was a song of the earth and...
