Solnce, solnce

Language: Russian

Solnce, solnce,
bozhestvennyj Ra-Gelios,
toboju veseljatsja
serdca carej i gerojev,
tebe rzhut svjashchennyje koni,
tebe pojut gimny v Geliopole;
kogda ty svetish',
jashchericy vypolzajut na kamni
i mal'chiki idut so smekhom
kupat'sja k Nilu.
Solnce, solnce,
ja - blednyj pisec,
bibliotechnyj zatvornik,
no ja ljublju tebja, solnce, ne men'she,
chem zagorelyj morjak,
pakhnushchij ryboj i solenoj vodoju,
i ne men'she,
chem jego privychnoje serdce
pri carstvennom tvojom voskhode
iz okeana,
mojo trepeshchet,
kogda tvoj pyl'nyj, no plamennyj luch
skvoz' uzkoje okno u potolka
na ispisannyj list
i moju tonkuju zheltovatuju ruku,
vyvodjashchuju kinovar'ju
pervuju bukvu gimna tebe,
o Ra-Gelios, solnce!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
