Aleksandr Pushkin

A Little Bird

In alien lands I keep the body
Of ancient native rites and things:
I gladly free a little birdie
At celebration of the spring.

I'm now free for consolation,
And thankful to almighty Lord:
At least, to one of his creations
I've given freedom in this world!
 

Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, March, 1997
Edited by Dmitry Karshtedt, December, 1999
