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.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
