The Head Of Hadzhi-Murat Rasul Gamzatov - Poem by Yuri Starostin
The head of Hadzhi-Murat
I see the head chopped off
And I hear the fight roars,
And the blood flows on a naked stone
Through the unpacific auls.
And the sabres,
That sharped about the rocks,
Fly up, seeing the kinds.
To Caucasus the true myurids
And skips along the abrupt roadside.
I have asked the bloody head:
- Whose you were, tell on a favour?
The topped by the glory,
In the another's hands have you?
And I hear suddenly:
- To hide to me there is nothing,
I am the head of Hadzhi-Murat,
And consequently has rolled down from him shoulders,
That I have lost the way at once.
The road has selected not the best,
The fault to all is my customs of the vanity...
I look at the stray head,
That in the unequal fight it is cut down.
By the footpaths, through a distance proerased,
In the mountains the born men,
We should live or dead
To come back to the tops.
