EVGENY BARATYNSKY: "I Love You, Goddesses Of Singing"

"I Love You, Goddesses Of Singing"

I love you, goddesses of singing,
But your invasion, so fine,
That tremor of the spirit thrilling,
Is a herald of the future pines.

The Muses’ love and Fortune’s striking
Are one. I’m silent. I’m afraid:
My fingers, casting on the light strings, 
Might here awake these storms and lightnings
In which my sleeping fate was laid.

And, with strong torments ever wound,
I leave the Muse, who favours me,
And say: “Till tomorrow, sounds,
Let the day expire quietly.”


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, January, 2001
