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 Gates of Paradise

There are no seven diamond seals to close / the eternal gates of God's great paradise / it has no tempting charms, no beckoning glow / and to the people remains unrecognized. / / a doorway in a wall long since forsaken / a mass of stones and moss and nothing more. / nearby, a beggar, ...

A portrait of a man

His eyes are lightless underground lakes, / Abandoned castles of the ancient kings. / Marked with the sign of the eternal shame / Of that, the Other One, he never speaks. / The deepest wound, his mouth, dark and purple, / Made with a blade borne of the deadly poison; / And it is sad and ...

I`m dreaming that both of us dead…

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. / ...

Unperturbed and indifferent sun contemplated the planet…

Unperturbed and indifferent sun contemplated the planet / There all was infested with terror and eaten by rot, / There rocks in the distance appeared a huge shaggy dog, / There black boiling copper spewed out collapsing volcanoes. / Was the night of the world. / / Unexpectedly rolled i...

Their souls` love had been born beside the sea…

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 ...
