Remus and Romulus went up a hill...

Основатели

Remus and Romulus went up a hill,
The hill was mute and wild.
Romulus said "Here will be the City",
Remus added "that shines"

Romulus said "The grace of the stars
Blessed our past we forgot".
Remus said: "What passed is the past,
The glorious future we've got".

"Here'll be the Circus", the first brother
Said, "and our house, open to all".
"Let's move the tombs," said then another
"Closer to our new home".

I’ll be with you until the dawn, / And then I shall depart / To find where tsars have curtain drawn, / Who’ve given stars their heart. / / Those tsars are dreaming azure dreams / Enmeshed with sparkling eyes; / They’re where the drowsy skyline’s stream / On ...

The masters` prayer

I keep in memory the masters` ancient prayer: / Please, Lord, take us away from those who care / If our poor genius` decisions / Blasphemously were searching for new visions. / / We can accept a foe who doesn`t fake / But these are wondering of every step we take / They are so gla...

Me and You

Yes, I know, we are not together, / From another terrain I’m hewn, / Won’t allow the guitar to tether, / I prefer wild zurna’s tune. / / I don’t visit the halls and salons / Where an audience sits in black / I’m reciting my lines to dragons, / Waterfall...

The Return

To Anna Akhmatova / / With all asleep I from the house departed, / In bushes by the ditch was guide concealed. / Perhaps when morning came a search you started, / You were too late, for we were in the field. / / My guide was sallow, skeletal, bent over, / Oh, how I loved him - I wa...
