Lé Pèrrot

Попугай

Mé, j'sis un pèrrot v'nu d'îles bein au liain,
mais mé v'chîn cârré dans l'aître d'un chorchi;
tout l'tou des globes, d'la vèrr'rie, du papi,
lé vyi rîncliote, et l'hôlouoge sonne en vain.

À l'heuthe des chorchéthons, à l'yi d'adain,
à l'êcliat d'cout'las, ès vouaix enrainchies,
qu'mes ailes d'jéhan et d'vèrtu saient craînchies,
ainchîn jé m'freûle auve d's êpitafl'yes d'cahouains.

Ainchîn! Lé v'là tchi s'sîlye souos chutte néthe votte:
un d'vîn ès cartes - s'nou-s'aime, s'nou-s'êpithouote -
un dêbaûchi en grand manté couèrt d'or, -

et j'rêve au baté, trantchil'ye dans la baie;
j'èrconnais l'solé lithant, et d'amors
j'êprouve d'oublier qu'toute chorchel'lie est laie.

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 ...

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 / ...
