The blurred outlines of a cliffs by Rasul Gamzatov

* *
The blurred outlines of a cliffs -
A day is foggy and misty from the dawn.
He come to us, come down, become,
But the sun he has left somewhere.

He looks like a horse, that comes back
In a mist from the battle,
Leaving to lie a rider on an earth
Without a movement...

Rasul Gamzatov. Last price.
Moscow: Contemporary,1979.
* * *
Размытые контуры скал -
День туманный и мглистый с рассвета.
Он пришел к нам, спустился, настал,
Но солнце оставил он где-то.

Он похож на коня, что во мгле
Возвращается с поля сраженья,
Оставив лежать седока на земле
Без движенья...

Расул Гамзатов. Последняя цена.
Москва: Современник,1979.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
