Dětství

Детство

Na lukách s vůní medovou
já v dětství tak šťasten byl,
v pasekách s trávou vysokou,
že býk se do ní skryl.

Tu volal každý keř u cesty:
«Pojď, spolu si pohrajem.
Opatrně mne obejdi
a uvidíš, kdo vlastně jsem.»

Jen divoký vítr podzimní
často hru překazil nám,
srdce mi tlouklo blaženě,
já věřil, že umírám.

Ne sám, se mnou druh, tak drahý mi,
devětsil, lopucha s ním.
A za nebesy dálnými
že všemu porozumím.

A proto mám rád bitev rozmary,
hrom děl když k útoku řve,
že lidská krev není mi světější,
než trav šťávy smaragdové.

Ezbekiah

How strange - a decade ago precisely I / Was there, looking at Ezbekiah. / The great Cairo garden, as a full moon / Solemnly blessed the gathering night. / / I was worn down because of a woman, / And neither the salty fresh wind from the sea, / Nor the commotion of the exotic bazaar /...

The Word

In those days, over the new world, when / God turned His face,** then / The word stopped the sun,*** / The word brought down a town.**** / / The eagle stretched not his wing, / The stars in fear stung at the moon, / When, like a rose colored flame, / Through the heights, the word sw...

Baby Elephant

My love for you’s become - a baby elephant, / Not long since born in Paris or Berlin / Who stamps on padded soles about the rooms / Inside its owner’s small menagerie. / / Do not attempt to offer him those fine French rolls, / And do not offer him the heads of cabbages, / ...

The Stray Tram

The street I walked was unfamiliar, / Suddenly I heard crows caw, / And a lute clink, and distant thunder, - / In front of me a tram flew. / / How I leaped up on its rail / Puzzled me a great deal, / For in the air, its fiery trail / Persisted through the light of day. / / It t...

Among Gypsies

Heavily he swayed as if he were drugged, / Teeth flashing beneath the fierce moustache, / Dressed in scarlet, he seemed half-crazed, / With braids of entwined gold sash. / / An instrument’s string... a throaty scream... and suddenly / Sweetness moaned through my blood, / How wil...

The Drunk Dervish

Nightingales in the cypresses, a moon on the lake, / Black stone, white stone, much wine I have drunk. / The bottle singing loud in my heart says now: / The world’s the light in a friend’s face, all else shadow! / / I am smitten by the wine server, not today, not yesterday. / ...
