EVGENY BARATYNSKY: "We Diligently Watch..."

"We Diligently Watch..."

1828
We diligently watch the world,
We diligently watch the people – 
Wait for the wonder in their middle.
And what are fruits of the long years’ plots?   
What will, at last, discern the eyes, sharp-sighted?
What will cognize the ever-lofty mind
On a top of the experience and finds?…
The essence of a proverb, always cited.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, January, 2001
