Smith, William Jay: Любовники (The Lovers in Russian)

Portre of Smith, William Jay

The Lovers (English)

Above, through lunar woods a goddess flees

Between the curving trunks of slender trees;

Bare Mazda bulbs outline the bone-white rooms


Where, on one elbow, rousing by degrees,

They stare, a sheet loose-folded round their knees,

Off into space, as from Etruscan tombs.

Любовники (Russian)

Чащобой лунных спутанных теней

Богиня ускользает — а под ней

Прожектор "Мазды" разом осветил


Всю комнату. И лес еще темней,

И привстают над пеной простыней,

Как из этрусских подняты могил.
