In The Sky

В небесах

Sun ignited days brighter than gold,
And Big Dipper Bear-night ran away.
Prince, catch up with her, grab and take hold
With a noose, tie to saddle the stray!

Take a hold, tie to saddle the stray,
After that, in your blue castle dome,
Let your mighty Great Dog have his way
With the Bear-night right at your home.

Of his deadly grip Dog won't let go,
He is spirited, cunning, and strong,
Beastly anger to bears he sewed
From the time immemorial throng.

Then she won't cope with deadly malaise,
And the Bear-night'd finally die,
So that Aries and Taurus could graze
With the Capricorn, safe in the sky.

Yet All But Once

Yet all but once you’ll reminisce of me / And of my world mysterious and thrilling, / The quirky world of songs and fervency, / But among all, unique and undeceiving. / / It could have been yours also, but alas, / It was too much for you, or was too scanty, / I must have ...

Autumn

An orange-red sky... / A gusty wind shakes / The bloody cluster of rowan berries. / I chase the fleeing horse / Past the glass hothouse, / Past the trellises of the old park, / And past the swan pond. / Alongside me runs / My shaggy, red-haired dog, / Who is dearer to me / Than e...

Cain’s Descendants

He didn’t deceive us, that sad, somber spirit / Who wears the morning star as pseudonym / And said: "Shun not the highest gain, nor fear it: / Taste of the fruit and you will equal Him." / / Instantly, for the youth, all roads lay open, / And for old men, all mysteries to know, / ...

The Worker

He’s standing there, beside the glowing furnace, / A small man, probably older than you’d think. / His gaze is peaceful, seems almost submissive / From the way his reddened eyelids blink. / / All his workmates have knocked off - they’re sleeping / But he’s still ...

The Lost Tram

I was walking an obscure route / And abruptly I heard caws of crows, / A distant thunder and a tinkling lute: / A rushing tram was really close. / / How I leapt to its step / Is still a mystery to me. / It left a fiery track beyond itself / Which even in the daylight I could see. ...

The Word

That day when over world newborn / God would reveal his face / Sun could be stopped by word alone / Word could destroy a place / / Hawks dared not to strike their wings / The stars drew closer to the Moon / When as aurora in the skies / A word would drift along / / A number was...
