Я і Ви

Я и Вы

Так, я знаю, що ми не пара,
Я – з чужої вам сторони.
І вподобав я не гітару,
А дикунський мотив зурни.

Не у залах, не у салонах
Темним сукням і піджакам –
Я дарую пісні драконам,
Водоспадам, легким хмаркам.

Я люблю, як араб в пустелі, –
До води припадає й п’є,
Не як рицар на акварелі,
Що під зорями жде своє.

І помру я не на постелі
Із священиком при свічі,
А де-небудь на дикій скелі,
Потонулій в густім плющі,

Щоб ввійти не в для всіх відкритий
Протестантський прибраний рай,
А туди, де розбійник, митар
І блудниця гукнуть: «Вставай!».

Thoughts

They have crowded around me - why? - like thieves / in the dark, in the quiet suburban dark. / Like sinister hawks, like sullen hawks, / they have come for some cruel vengeance. / / Hope left. Dream ran. / Anxiety pried open my eyes / and as though on a ghostly slate / I read my wor...

A Ballad

The Turkey

In the morning of my unsure memory / I recall a many-coloured meadow, / where ruled a haughty / turkey, adored by me. / / He was malicious and free, / his beak crimson as fire / and he was sharply scornful / of my four years. / / Neither chocolate, nor caramels, / nor pineapp...

The palm groves and the aloe thickets…

The palm groves and the aloe thickets, / a silvery, matt stream, / the sky is infinitely blue, / the sky is gold from rays. / / What more do you want, heart? / Is happiness a fable or a lie? / Why do you give yourself up submissively / to another faith temptations? / / Do you w...

The Giraffe

O, the look in your eyes this morning is more than usually sad, / With your little arms wrapped round your knees and body bent in half. / Let me tell you a story: far, far away, on the distant shores of Lake Chad, / There roams a most majestic giraffe / / Blessed with a handsome build and...

A Ballad

My friend, Lucifer gave five horses to me, / And a radiant ruby-stone beautiful ring, / So that I could go down to marvelous caves, / And could see there heaven's celestial face. / / Snorted horses, and zealous, they hoofed, and they begged / To race over and over the space of the earth...
