Hughes, Ted: Кафка (Kafka in Russian)

Portre of Hughes, Ted

Kafka (English)

And he is an owl
He is an owl, "Man" tattooed in his armpit
Under the broken wing
(Stunned by the wall of glare? he fell here)
Under the broken wing of huge shadow that twitches across the floor.

He is a man in hopeless feathers.

Кафка (Russian)

А он - сова!
Он сова, а "Человек" - всего лишь тату у него подмышкой,
Под сломанным крылом
(Ошеломленный стеной яркого света, он упал здесь),
Под сломанным крылом огромной тени дергается на полу.

Он человек в безнадежности перьев.
