The day and the night borns for a good Rasul Gamzatov

* * *
The day and the night borns for a good
The children of time - the brother and the sister.

And from a century on the planet
Only separately they go always,
And the Earth protogenic children -
They are a people, a fire and water.

Over the river the fire by the tongue
Is torn in the sky.
And I am glad till the morning
To see the red-faced brother,
Hearing, as the sister sings.

J.Kozlovskogo's lane
* * *
День и ночь рождены для добра
Дети времени - брат и сестра.

И от века они по планете
Только порознь ходят всегда,
А Земли первозданные дети -
Это люди, огонь и вода.

Над рекою костер языкато
Рвется в небо.
И рад до утра
Видеть я красноликого брата,
Слыша, как напевает сестра.

Пер. Я.Козловского

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
