Example text

Last aching thoughts will linger! Last leaves will come undone! I never wished to hinder The one who's used to fun. Dear lips - absolved at last For jokes that hurt me so… You’ll come to visit us Tomorrow, through the snow. The candles, in the day, Burn tenderly, more ardent. They’ll bring a whole bouquet Of roses from the garden. August 1910 Tsarskoe Selo *** Мне с тобою пьяным весело — Смысла нет в твоих рассказах. Осень ранняя развесила Флаги жёлтые на вязах. Оба мы в страну обманную Забрели и горько каемся, Но зачем улыбкой странною И застывшей улыбаемся?

1909 Киев *** Not the snake fangs, but the stinging Heartache emptied out my veins.

I’ll bid her to rise, Only to gaze at her grey-colored eyes. Outside the window, the poplars unnerved, Whisper: “Your king is no more on this earth…” December 11, 1910 Tsarskoe Selo Рыбак Руки голы выше локтя, А глаза синей, чем лёд. Едкий, душный запах дегтя, Как загар, тебе идёт. И всегда, всегда распахнут Ворот куртки голубой, И рыбачки только ахнут, Закрасневшись пред тобой. Даже девочка, что ходит В город продавать камсу, Как потерянная бродит Вечерами на мысу. Щеки бедны, руки слабы, Истомленный взор глубок, Ноги ей щекочут крабы, Выползая на песок.
