Nikolai Stepanovich Gumilev Life Poems

  • 1.
    I wait for, full of thoughts provoking,
    But not a gay and pretty wife,
    Not the sincere and gentle talking
    About the old time and life.
  • 2.
    Birth of the word is by agony molded,
    Through earthly life it is quietly going,
    It is a stranger, which drinks from the golden
    Pitcher the drops of the savagesâ?? mourning.
  • 3.
    I know: to the trees, but not to us,
    Perfection of the life is given, whole.
    And on the Earth â?? the sister of the stars â??
    We live in exile, while they do at home.
  • 4.
    Look at the moon in the midst of
    Vastly magnificent sky bed;
    Hear the young winds among bamboo;
    Feel the air â?? heavy with fragrance.
  • 5.
    Only serpents let their skin be fallen
    And a soul - all grown up and old.
    We, alas, change an eternal soul,
    Leaving body in eternal hold.
  • 6.
    In the days when the God eternal
    Was declining face to the new world,
    By the Word they stopped the sunâ??s inferno,
    And destroyed the towns by the Word.
  • 7.
    This single link was else respected
    By people of the days that gone â??
    Thereâ??s written on its tablet sacred
    That Love and Life is one.
  • 8.
    I know her, her bitter silence,
    Her tiredness of her words and cries,
    Lives in the secret changing brightness
    Of widened pupils of her eyes.

Charles Baudelaire Poem
Le Voyage
 by Charles Baudelaire

A Maxime Du Camp

Pour l'enfant, amoureux de cartes et d'estampes,
L'univers est égal à son vaste appétit.
Ah! que le monde est grand à la clarté des lampes!
Aux yeux du souvenir que le monde est petit!
