EVGENY VINOKUROV: "Oh, Artist..."

"Oh, Artist..."

To Al. Mikhailov
Oh, artist, educate your apprentice,
Don’t grudge your strengths for best his education,
Let, after yours, his hand awkwardly try 
To copy signs of ABC-succession. 
Let him look then at you with lofty eyes,
Sure, at the moment, he’s a genius, rather…

Oh, artist, educate your apprentice,
To have the one who’ll be your teacher further.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, May, 2001
