MARINA TSVETAEVA: The Seafarer

The Seafarer

1923
Rock me down, o starry skiff!
My head tired from waves, so stiff!

Very long I look for abode, –
My head tired from passions, hot:

Laurels – hymns – hydras – heroes, brazed, –
My head tired from senseless plays!

Lay me down mid leaves and grass, –
My head tired from ceaseless wars.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, October 14, 2005
