Ledy jdou

Ледоход

Průzračnou jarní zelení
už ostrovy se ozdobily.
Však Něva hned se promění
a zamračí se každou chvíli.

Jdi na most, dolů pohlédni:
ledovou tříští kry se řítí,
zelené, jak jed na mědi,
z nich hadí sykot slyšíš zníti.

Tak zeměpisci divné sny
vědomí v polospánku tíží,
neznámých pevnin obrysy,
když v horečce se k němu blíží.

Tak vlhkem houby zavoní.
Ve sklepě cítíš dech ten vlahý
nad zakopanou mrtvolou,
kde v tajemné tmě lezou žáby.

Nemocnou řekou hukot jde.
Medvědům bílým smutno není
v zoologické zahradě.
Ti jedině jsou spokojení.

Už vědí; tohle vše je klam —
a vítězně po kleci chodí.
Sám ledový jde Oceán
a z vězení je vysvobodí.

Comfort

He that has been burried / Hears a glorious chime, / Smells the whitest lilies / In his dream beyond time. / / He that in his grave lies / Sees an endless light / As the wings of Seraphs / Shed their snow-flakes bright. / / You are on your death-bed / And your hands are cold....

The Giraffe

Today, I can see that your glance is especially sad, / And your hands are especially frail and your hair especially a mess. / There, there now... Just listen... far, far away, on Lake Chad / Roams a proud and graceful giraffe... / / An exquisite figure and a leisurely life are his boon / ...

The Giraffe

Today I can see that your features are strikingly sad, / Your arms on your knees are as thin as dandelion stalks. / But listen, in far-away lands that surround lake Chad / A graceful giraffe softly walks. / / A slender and delicate beauty he rightfully owns, / And magical ornaments run ...

Me and You

Yes I know, me and you - we aren't alike, / I have come from far away soils, / And it's not the guitar I like, / It's the sound of violent tonsils. / / Its not for the buildings or roads / Not for the dresses or fashion - / I spell out my poems for dragons, / For the clouds, ...
