Yuri Starostin

Freshman - 870 Points (4.07.1972.)


Where the stream
Runs in the stones,
Is humming
In the mountains,
Where the elk
Knocks till the blood
The hoofs,
The gun (I talk about this openly)
But for the fun
I tore from the shoulder.
The taiga land
Has not scanty
The know of the measure
The dark ancestor of Barguchan has.
I am from the peaks of the black rocks
Has got the sheep,
Took a musk deer, the fate of an animals I was owned.
But I was not an animal,
As someone was
And I sought
The delight of the pagan hunting,
In the mountains,
Where each chamack knows
Who are you,
And with somewhat you has come
To the foot of the black rocks...

Где ручей
Бежит в камнях,
В горах,
Где лось
Сбивает в кровь
Ружье (об этом говорю открыто)
Но для забавы
Я срывал с плеча.
Таежный край
Не оскудел.
Знал меру
Темный пращур Баргучана.
Я с пиков черных скал
Снимал барана,
Брал кабаргу, - судьбой зверей владел.
Но не зверел,
Как кто-то,
А искал
В душе восторг языческой охоты,
В горах,
Где каждый чамак знает,
Кто ты,
И чем пришел
К подножию черных скал…
