ALEXANDR PUSHKIN: To the Bust of the Conqueror

To the Bust of the Conqueror

1829
In vain, you’re seeking errors here:
The hand of art has camouflaged
The marble of lips with a smile, smeared,
Ice of a brow - with a rage…
In fact, this image is two-faced.
The same was and that mighty king:
Used to his soul’s controversies,
A face and life – of Harlequin.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, July 10, 2004
