Stance

На острове

Ach, jaká mha ten ostrov zahalila
        
a skály se všech stran!
Zde Apokalypsis napsána byla,

        zde umřel Pan.

Však jinde ostrov s palmovými háji,

        rozkvetlý sad,
veselé písně ženců se tu rozléhají
        
a zvonce stád.

Já staré housle, vyklenuté divně,

        do rukou vzal
a sotva dýchaje, jich duši v zvuky proměněné

        jsem naslouchal.

Ach, ano! Osud pokořil mne mocí

        svých kouzel všech,
to hvězdný déšť nad mojí hlavou v noci

        i zvuk a vzdech.

Jsem volný, věřím v náhod na tisíce,

        můj domov — svět.
Děvušce líbám rozpálené líce,
        dychtivý ret.

Jen na chvilku tam od Vás do mé říše

        most spuštěn jest.
Jej ihned spálí meče, kříže, číše
        
ohromných hvězd.

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...

The Leopard

If the whiskers of a slain leopard are not promptly singed, / its spirit will pursue the hunter. / Abyssinian proverb / By some sorcerous divination, / In the silence of deaf nights, / Leopard, killed by me, leaves station, / Bold, explores my room’s delights. / / Folk are c...

No, there has been no transformation...

No, there has been no transformation / Of nature, poor and unalloyed, / But only bright illumination / With untold beauty fills the void. / / And so it’s probably quite certain / Hangs human flesh on fraying cord, / When cry from darkness rents the curtain, / In judgement&rsqu...
