ALEXANDR PUSHKIN: "What's Up? Why Are You..."

"What's Up? Why Are You..."

1817
‘What’s up? Why are you of such saddened sight?’ –
‘I am in love!’ – ‘But who is your Sibilla?’ –
‘Just she! Just she!’ – ‘Glitsera, Hloya, Lila?’ –
‘Oh, no!’ – ‘For whom is sacrificed your heart?’ –
‘For her! For her!’ – ‘You’re shy, o, friend, my dear!
But why have you in such a pine to be?
Whose fault is it? Her man or dad is here…’ –
‘Oh, no!’ – ‘Than what?’ – ‘For her I am not he.’


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, April 1, 2005
