When someone is parted by the defect Rasul Gamzatov


* * *
When someone is parted by the defect,
We judge and shout, and we are indignant,
By the vestige of the antiquated times
All worst defects we are called.

That is the careerist, and this is the slanderer,
Pursued the people in the spiteful anonimous.
But the grandfathers are here at somewhat? So our language
In those days did not know the similar words!

N.Grebneva's lane
* * *
Когда пороком кто-то наделен,
Мы судим, и кричим, и негодуем,
Мы пережитком дедовских времен
Все худшие пороки именуем.

Тот карьерист, а этот клеветник,
Людей клянущий в анонимках злобных.
Но деды здесь при чем? Ведь наш язык
В те времена и слов не знал подобных!

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
