(4.07.1972.)

Even those to whom remains, can Rasul Gamzatov


* * *
Even those to whom remains, can,
A five minutes to look at this world,

Fuss, climb from a skin,
As if to live them a hundred years still.

And at the distance in the hundred years silence
The mountains, looking on the noise people,
Have stood, are sad and severe,
As if its to live at all the five minutes.

* * *
Даже те, кому осталось, может,
Пять минут глядеть на белый свет,

Суетятся, лезут вон из кожи,
Словно жить еще им сотни лет.

А вдали в молчанье стовековом
Горы, глядя на шумливый люд,
Замерли, печальны и суровы,
Словно жить всего им пять минут.

    Even those who remain can
    for five minutes look at the world (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
