ZINAIDA GIPPIUS: "He Took Pine..."

"He Took Pine..."

1916
He took pine of the earthly road – 
     First and unique one since;
Washed legs of them whoever roam – 
     The Servant and the Prince.

He cried with us – The legal Master     
     Of earth and sea, we view… 
A king, a teacher, and a brother – 
     And he’s a Jew.  


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, November, 2000
