My friend does not write me a letters Rasul Gamzatov

* * *
My friend does not write me a letters,
My friend does not write me a letters.
I write to me the letters,
As though the friend writes to me.

I read the letters to the neighbours,
I read the letters to the neighbours -
The fine kind letters,
Somewhat are not written to me the friend.

Мой друг не пишет мне писем,
Мой друг не пишет мне писем.
Я сам пишу себе письма,
Как будто пишет мне друг.

Я письма читаю соседям,
Я письма читаю соседям -
Прекрасные добрые письма,
Которых не пишет мне друг.

Расул Гамзатов. Последняя цена.

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
