Tālu – uz planētas Venēras...

На далекой звезде Венере…

Tālu – uz planētas Venēras
Saule zeltaināk spīd, vēl labāk,
Uz Venēras, ai, uz Venēras
Kokiem ir zilganas lapas.

Apkārt ūdens skanīgi lejas,
Ūdenskritumi, geizeri, tērces
Dienā dzied brīvības dzejas,
Naktī deg kā svētbilžu sveces.

Uz Venēras, ai, uz Venēras
Nav dzēlīgu vārdu un melu,
Runā eņģeļi uz Venēras
Tikai patskaņu mēlē.

Ja pateiks „aē” vai „aī” –
Tas būs sauciens nākt līdzi,
„Uo”, „ao” – viņi atceras arī
Par senseno paradīzi.

Uz Venēras, ai, uz Venēras
Nav nāves rūgtas un smacējošas,
Ja nomirst uz Venēras –
Gaisā kā garaiņi pošas.

Kā dūmi zeltaini, liegi
Klaiņo vakaros zilos un dīvos
Vai kā priecīgi svētceļnieki
Apciemo vēl dzīvos.

Lake Chad

On mysterious Lake Chad / Among the ancient baobabs / Guided by majestic Arabs / The carved-out feluccas scud / Among the trees along the banks / And from foothills spread with green, / To terrible gods, the maidens chant, / Priestesses with ebony skin. / / I was the wife of a mig...

The Tale of the Kings

"We are the splendid and strong, / Youthful kings, who glide, / Like clouds high in the sky, / Above the mirage of the lands. / / With eternal songs and dances / We erect a new temple. / Let us be drunk with the purple / That surely will stream from its windows. / / A window to...

Masquerade

In barren halls and secluded corridors / Today merry maskers were amassing, / Today in parlors, variegated colors / Like mad whirlwinds, swept through, dancing. / / They snaked about beneath dragons and moons, / Chinese vases were tossed among them, / Torches flamed and lutes strings ...

The Suicide

You let go and breathe deep / With an expectancy of rest, / And for the last time you see / The wallpaper and the carpet. / / From the lip of the patterned goblet / The ruddy wine dribbles; / Painstakingly you wipe it / With a sponge made from coral. / / The shadow of a blush /...

Hyena

Alongside the reeds of the sluggish Nile / Where birds and butterflies flit in the sun, / Lies the forgotten tomb’s rubble / Of a tyrannical and seductive Queen. / / The hazy night spreads deceptions, / White wisps of fog shift through the air / The moon is like a guilt-ridden s...
