M.Gorky, The Song About A Stormy Petrel - Translation (Rus.)
The song about a stormy petrel
By Maxim Gorky
Alongside the grey-haired sea plain
Wind is gathering the clouds.
Between clouds and the sea plain
There's a proud petrel flying,
As a black flicker of lightning.
Once he is touching the sea wave's edge,
Then is flying up to heavens
As an arrow, and he cries...
The clouds hear joy in his brave shout.
In this scream - the thirst for gale,
Force of anger, flame of passion,
And the certainty of triumph
Hear the clouds in his shout.
Sea gulls moan before the storming,
Moan, rush ...
One moment you wish to fight. Right?
The other moment is bright. Right?
In life you try to go right. Right?
And you believe that you are right. Right?
You see, fight, bright and right and right
Are so easy then to write....
