Rudens

Осень

Pa taciņu dienā
Es soļoju, sapņoju, gavilē sirds,
Un stiebrā ikvienā
Rit dzīve un acis daždažādas mirdz.

Aug vijoties zāle
Dzied lēnītēm puķes un sajūsmā tvīkst,
Un gaišzaļiem vāliem
Pār rudenīgs, saindēts elpojums līst.

Un laimīgā mānā,
Ik pēdējā starā, kas auksts jau un bāls,
Dzird smējēju Pānu
Un jaušama savāda, svešāda balss.

Un driādas kokā,
Kas asaru kristāliem ziedoņa raud,
Var aizmirst par mokām
Šai dievišķā sapnī uz brītiņu kaut.

Es zinu par maldiem,
Es šodien vēl līksmojošs gluži kā Pāns,
Bet rītdien no saltiem
Un sniegainiem ziediem būs apmetnis mans.

Un gaistošās gaidas
Ar rimstošām asinīm stāstīs, pirms mirts,
Par acīm bez smaida,
Par laimi bez dieva, par sapņiem bez sirds.

Beyond the Grave

There's a secret cavern, deep in the earth, / filled with stately tombs, / Lucifer's fiery dreams. / Beautiful whores slink between them. / / Whether you die proud or ashamed / a gloomy old man, a bony old man, / a boring, sluggish workman - Death - / will come and stare at you impe...

The Giraffe

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 / tha...

Descendants of Cain
