Perseus

Персей. Скульптура Кановы

Mus láska dávno patřilo mu,

rek světlý, plný mladých sil,

on strašnou medusinu hlavu

železnou rukou uchopil.

A vůbec ani nezahlédl,

on se svou duší bouřlivou,

jak krásné a jak lidsky něžné
dřív strašné oči nyní jsou,

ta tvář teď krásná, umučená,
jež protrpěla celý věk...
Chlapecká bujnost konce nemá

a mládí nezná překážek.

Tam nahá Andromeda čeká

a drak se svíjí.... Tam, ach, tam,
vítězství v patách za ním spěchá,

je okřídlené jako on sám.

Yet All But Once

Yet all but once you’ll reminisce of me / And of my world mysterious and thrilling, / The quirky world of songs and fervency, / But among all, unique and undeceiving. / / It could have been yours also, but alas, / It was too much for you, or was too scanty, / I must have ...

Cain’s Descendants

He didn’t deceive us, that sad, somber spirit / Who wears the morning star as pseudonym / And said: "Shun not the highest gain, nor fear it: / Taste of the fruit and you will equal Him." / / Instantly, for the youth, all roads lay open, / And for old men, all mysteries to know, / ...

The Worker

He’s standing there, beside the glowing furnace, / A small man, probably older than you’d think. / His gaze is peaceful, seems almost submissive / From the way his reddened eyelids blink. / / All his workmates have knocked off - they’re sleeping / But he’s still ...

The Lost Tram

I was walking an obscure route / And abruptly I heard caws of crows, / A distant thunder and a tinkling lute: / A rushing tram was really close. / / How I leapt to its step / Is still a mystery to me. / It left a fiery track beyond itself / Which even in the daylight I could see. ...

The Word

That day when over world newborn / God would reveal his face / Sun could be stopped by word alone / Word could destroy a place / / Hawks dared not to strike their wings / The stars drew closer to the Moon / When as aurora in the skies / A word would drift along / / A number was...
