Groves Of Palms And Thickets Of Wild Aloe...

Рощи пальм и заросли алоэ...

Groves of palms and thickets of wild aloe,
Shallow brook is silvery and dull,
Endless blue sky dome spanned over fallow,
Sky is golden from sun rays and lull.

Heart of mine, what else do you desire?
Is a bliss a fairy tale or lie?
Why do you give in yourself entire
To temptations of a strange gentile?

Do you really want again that poison,
Do you want to writhe in flaming rave,
Can't you live a life the grasses 've chosen
In entrancing garden that you crave?

On the ridges of rippling green waves...

On the ridges of rippling green waves / In the arctic and southern seas. / Among reefs of basalt and pearl / Rustle sails of the ships in the breeze. / / These swift-winged are captained by men / Who discover new lands and new goals, / And for whom hurricanes hold no dread. / Who ha...
