Treasure Island

Yuri Starostin

(4.07.1972.)

Following me by the step Rasul Gamzatov


Following me by the step
I aspire, by the grey hair binding,
To know what you are the poet,
By the youth are well-known,
Following me by the step.

Whether the shooter you are gloryfied,
And suddenly really are not present
In yours jacks the cartridges,
Following me by the step?

What is to the people you want to tell,
Having decided to surprise the whole world?
To the future what is you prophesy,
Following me by the step?

I have anticipated myself,
That you go, without a fearing troubles,
At the sky the fire you has stolen,
Following me by the step!

How in the fight to keep between
The two sabres to you is not to trace.
Justify mine hope,
Following me by the step!

Showing yours habit,
In the foot of the seven planets
Throw to me more soon the glove,
Following me by step!

And trust, I am ready to exchange
The popularity, as an amulet,
On a youth of your years I to do,
Following me by the step.

Rasul Gamzatov. The Final price.
Moscow: the Contemporary,1979.
Идущий за мною вслед
Стремлюсь, сединой повитый,
Узнать, что ты за поэт,
Молодостью знаменитый,
Идущий за мною вслед.

Стрелок ли ты из хваленых,
А вдруг настоящих нет
В твоих газырях патронов,
Идущий за мною вслед?

Что людям поведать хочешь,
Решив удивить весь свет?
Грядущему что пророчишь,
Идущий за мною вслед?

Я сам себя предвосхитил,
Чтоб ты, не страшася бед,
У неба огонь похитил,
Идущий за мною вслед!

Как в схватке, держаться между
Двух сабель тебе не след.
Мою оправдай надежду,
Идущий за мною вслед!

Являя свою повадку,
В подножье семи планет
Бросай мне скорей перчатку,
Идущий за мною вслед!

И верь, променять готов я
Известность, как амулет,
На юность твою годов я,
Идущий за мною вслед.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
