Giraffe

Жираф

Today, I see, you look especially sad,
your arms embracing your knees and especially thin.
Listen: far, far away round Lake Chad
wanders an elegant giraffe.
He is graceful, shapely and languid,
divine gifts — a magical pattern for his skin
that only the moon dares to compete with,
rays breaking and rocking on the wTatcrs of braid lakes.
From afar he is like the coloured sails of a ship.
His running flows like a joyful bird's flight.
I know that the earth has much to marvel at
when he hides in a marble grotto at sunset.
I know' the happy tales of mysterious lands
about the black maiden, the young hero's passion,
but you breathed in the heavy mist for too long,
you w'ill not believe in anything except rain.
And how can I tell you of the tropical garden,
of the slender palms, of the smell of undreamed-of herbs.
You are crying? Listen... far away round Lake Chad
wanders an elegant giraffe.

I'm dreaming that both of us dead. / We're lying - so peaceful for ever. / Two white heavy coffins of lead / Put down together. / / And when did we say that "enough"? / What for then and what means the trying? / But strange that's not aching my heart, / My heart is not crying. / ...

Their souls' love had been born beside the sea, / In sacred groves of virginal naiads, / Whose songs, arguing with the play of wind, / With strings, ring joyfully, eternally. / / Great oracle... the majesty of man / Has never been more strange and more severe, / The closed lips and th...

The Magic Violin

Pretty boy, / you are so merry / and your smile's - so light, so sunny. / Don't you ask me for this passion / that is poison to the worlds. / You don't know, don't know how dreadful / is this Magic Violin, sonny, / And how gloomy is the horror / of the one who strikes the ...

Comfort

He that has been burried / Hears a glorious chime, / Smells the whitest lilies / In his dream beyond time. / / He that in his grave lies / Sees an endless light / As the wings of Seraphs / Shed their snow-flakes bright. / / You are on your death-bed / And your hands are cold....

The Giraffe

Today, I can see that your glance is especially sad, / And your hands are especially frail and your hair especially a mess. / There, there now... Just listen... far, far away, on Lake Chad / Roams a proud and graceful giraffe... / / An exquisite figure and a leisurely life are his boon / ...
