ALEXANDR PUSHKIN: "The Deaf Once Called the Deaf…"

"The Deaf Once Called the Deaf…"

The deaf once called the deaf to the deaf judge – right now;
The first deaf cried: “He’s spoiled my own cow!” –
 “For goodness’ sake,” to that another blared,
“This plot belonged still to my late granddad!” 
“To stop a sin,” decided the judge witty,
“The pal’s to marry her, though the wench is guilty.”


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, March 2, 2003
