Acrostic

Акростих

Addis Ababa, city of roses.
Near the bank of transparent streams,
No earthly devas brought you here,
A diamond, amidst gloomy gorges.

Armidin garden … There a pilgrim
Keeps his oath of obscure love
(Mind, we all bow before him),
And the roses cloy, the roses red.

There, full of deceit and venom,
Ogles some gaze into the soul,
Via forests of tall sycamores,
And alleyways of dusky planes.

To the People Of the Present

Why we don't make them distinguished - / Our thoughts - with heart's vibration, / Fill the air with cry and skirmish, / Dreams and lies in combination. / / Just for that, that, fully useless, / Lost of joy and lost of sadness, / To draw spirals of the losers, / Between even Time and...

To a Poet

Let verse of yours be flexible, but strong, / Strong as a poplar under valley's cover, / Strong as the earth under a plough, long, / Strong as a girl, who never knew a lover. / / Reliably preserve severity at length, / Your verse need not be fluttering or booming, / Although the Muse ...

The Trees

I know: to the trees, but not to us, / Perfection of the life is given, whole. / And on the Earth - the sister of the stars - / We live in exile, while they do at home. / / In latest falls, in sad and empty fields, / The red-brass dawns and amber-clad sunrises / Teach to th...

Under Poet

Under poet's fingers, fast and thin, / Strings were fluttering with easy, gentle sound, / Strings were golden, as the bands, around / Wrists of glum and unrestricted Queen. / / Calls of passion made the air drunk, / And the summer lightning was in hurry... / Not in vain, ranged those ...
