A.Blok, To Anna Akhmatova - Translation (Rus.)


To Anna Akhmatova
By Alexander Blok

'And the beauty is terrible' - You'd be told to, -
Then You'll put on lazily
On your shoulders the spain shawl,
And a scarlet rose - in hair.

'And the beauty is simple' -
You'd be told to, -
With a motley shawl You'll lubberly
Cover a child,
And a rose - on the floor.

But, absentmindedly harking
To all words, heard around,
You'll sink to a reverie,
And rehearsing inside You:

'I'm not awful, nor simple;
I'm not terrible to kill down
Easily; I'm not so simple
To learn, that the life is frightening'.

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
