I Woke Up Today, To Joseph Brodsky - Poem by Liza Sud

I woke up today,
Lonely but OK.
Two lines not of pray
Washed my grief away.

It was Belfast tune
Beating in my mind,
It was, Joseph, you,
Sitting by my side –

In the sky of skies!
Not this world at all!
Dactyl 2 and half –
Carol, Martial Law:

“All my polish friends
Are behind steel bars'.
And your poet-friend
Without you may die!

***
Все Окей с утра,
Хоть была одна.
не молитв строка
смыла грусть с меня.

Belfast tune – стихи
Били ритм в уме,
И Иосиф – ты
Близ меня сидел -

В небесах небес!
Не из сих миров!
Дактиль двух с полтин –
Carol, Martial Law:

Польские друзья
Брошены в тюрьму.
Так теперь и я
Без тебя – умру.
