Osip Emilevich Mandelstam Life Poems
I have studied the Science of departures,
in nightâ??s sorrows, when a womanâ??s hair falls down.
The oxen chew, thereâ??s the waiting, pure,
in the last hours of vigil in the town,
The meaning of somber and barren
Venetian life is clear to me:
My beast, my age, who will try
to look you in the eye,
and weld the vertebrae
of century to century,
To Read Only Children's Books
To read only children's books,
To have only childish thoughts,
To throw everything grown-up away,
To rise from deep sadness.
We Went Out Of Our Minds With The Easy Life
We went out of our minds with the easy life,
Wine from morning on, hungover by evening,
How can I keep this idle gaiety,
Your blush, O drunken plague? ...
Why Do The Clock-hopperssing
Why do the clock-hopperssing,
And fever rustle
And dry stove crackle --
It is red silk burning. ...
A Flame Is In My Blood
A flame is in my blood
burning dry life, to the bone.
I do not sing of stone,
now, I sing of wood. ...
As Psyche-life Goes Down To The Shades
As Psyche-Life goes down to the shades
In a translucent forest in Persephone's tracks,
A blind swallow falls at her feet
With Stygian tenderness and a green branch. ...
Just For Joy, Take From My Palms
Just for joy, take from my palms
A little sun, a little honey,
As Persephone's bees commanded.
