Poems in Russian


Мы с тобой повстречались в пространстве Евклида,
Там была танцплощадка, теперь ее нету,
Там стояла скамья, где сидели без видов
на дальнейшее сироты замкнутым летом.

Там была еще лодка, была еще пристань,
там сияли начала, блестели детали.
Нынче трудно представить, что там было чисто,
Что вручную стирали небесные дали.

Там пылила дорога, скрипели ступени,
Там гамак провисал между вишней-черешней,
Там однажды пред морем ты стал на колени,
Чтобы я всех на свете была безутешней.

Вот бы волос сплести твой и мой, вот бы голос
Вновь тебя я не встречу. В пространстве Евклида
Остаются одна геометрии школа
и глухая на пагубный угол обида.

Regina Derieva


We met with you in Euclidean space,
there was a dance floor, now itís gone,
there was a bench, which sat without species
further orphan closed in the summer.

There was another boat, there was a marina,
there shone the beginning, glistening detail.
Today it is difficult to imagine that there was clean
that hand-washing heaven gave.

There pylila road, scraping step,
there slack hammock between cherry-cherries
there once before the Sea you knelt
to anyone in the world I was inconsolable.

That would have to weave your hair and my voice is so
Once again, I do not meet you. In the Euclidean space
remain a school geometry
and deaf to the fatal injury angle.
