Osip Emilevich Mandelstam Love Poems

  • 1.
    I canĂ¢??t sleep. Homer, and the taut white sails.
    I could the list of ships read only to a half:
    The long-long breed, the train of flying cranes
    Had lifted once the ancient Greece above.
  • 2.

    The meaning of somber and barren
    Venetian life is clear to me:
  • 3.

    I want to serve you
    On an equal footing with others;
  • 4.
    The Greeks planned for war
    On the delightful island of Salamis.
    From the harbor of Athens, you could see it
    Seized by the enemy's hand.
  • 5.
    I often shiver with cold --
    I want to be mute as a thing!
    There is, in the skies, dancing gold
    Sending me commands to sing!
  • 6.
    To read only children's books,
    To have only childish thoughts,
    To throw everything grown-up away,
    To rise from deep sadness.
  • 7.

    When you are trying to sleep, Solominka,
    In your enormous bedroom, and are waiting,
  • 8.
    Go back to the tainted lap, Leah,
    Whence you came,
    Because to the sun of Ilion
    You preferred yellow twilight.
  • 9.
    I don-t remember the word I wished to say.
    The blind swallow returns to the hall of shadow,
    on shorn wings, with the translucent ones to play.
    The song of night is sung without memory, though.
