A. ANDREEV: Requiem

Requiem

(From Juan Ramon Jimenez)
When, in the night, show the centuries 
all beauty of their shining lotus,
the Earth’s deep unity embraces  
the whole dome of the cosmos. 

And our life, through our errors, 
tries to unriddle existence endless: 
we’re equal – in a soil – emperors,
and only she’s the reigning empress.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, December, 2002
