Poetry: Aleksandr Blok - The Twelve - To the Muse - Links to more AB




The Twelve

III
Our sons have gone
to serve the Reds
to serve the Reds
to risk their heads!

O bitter,bitter pain,
Sweet living!
A torn overcoat
an Austrian gun!

-To get the bourgeosie
We'll start a fire
a worldwide fire, and drench it
in blood-
The good Lord bless us!


-O you bitter bitterness,
boring boredom,
deadly boredom.

This is how I will
spend my time.

This is how I will
scratch my head,

munch on seeds,
some sunflower seeds,

play with my knife
play with my knife.

You bourgeosie, fly as a sparrow!
I'll drink your blood,

your warm blood, for love,
for dark-eyed love.

God, let this soul, your servant,
rest in peace.

Such boredom!


XII
... On they march with sovereign tread...
‘Who else goes there? Come out! I said
come out!’ It is the wind and the red
flag plunging gaily at their head.

The frozen snow-drift looms in front.
‘Who’s in the drift! Come out! Come here!’
There’s only the homeless mongrel runt
limping wretchedly in the rear ...

‘You mangy beast, out of the way
before you taste my bayonet.
Old mongrel world, clear off I say!
I’ll have your hide to sole my boot!

The shivering cur, the mongrel cur
bares his teeth like a hungry wolf,
droops his tail, but does not stir ...
‘Hey answer, you there, show yourself.’

‘Who’s that waving the red flag?’
‘Try and see! It’s as dark as the tomb!’
‘Who’s that moving at a jog
trot, keeping to the back-street gloom?’

‘Don’t you worry ~ I’ll catch you yet;
better surrender to me alive!’
‘Come out, comrade, or you’ll regret
it ~ we’ll fire when I’ve counted five!’

Crack ~ crack ~ crack! But only the echo
answers from among the eaves ...
The blizzard splits his seams, the snow
laughs wildly up the wirlwind’s sleeve ...

Crack ~ crack ~ crack!
Crack ~ crack ~ crack!
... So they march with sovereign tread ...
Behind them limps the hungry dog,
and wrapped in wild snow at their head
carrying a blood-red flag ~
soft-footed where the blizzard swirls,
invulnerable where bullets crossed ~
crowned with a crown of snowflake pearls,
a flowery diadem of frost,
ahead of them goes Jesus Christ.


To the Muse

In your hidden memories
There are fatal tidings of doom...
A curse on sacred traditions,
A desecration of happiness;

And a power so alluring
That I am ready to repeat the rumour
That you have brought angels down from heaven,
Enticing them with your beauty...

And when you mock at faith,
That pale, greyish-purple halo
Which I once saw before
Suddenly begins to shine above you.

Are you evil or good? You are altogether from another world
They say strange things about you
For some you are the Muse and a miracle.
For me you are torment and hell.

I do not know why in the hour of dawn,
When no strength was left to me,
I did not perish, but caught sight of your face
And begged you to comfort me.

I wanted us to be enemies;
Why then did you make me a present
Of a flowery meadow and of the starry firmament --
The whole curse of your beauty?

Your fearful caresses were more treacherous
Than the northern night,
More intoxicating than the golden champagne of Aï,
Briefer than a gypsy woman's love...

And there was a fatal pleasure
In trampling on cherished and holy things;
And this passion, bitter as wormwood,
Was a frenzied delight for the heart!

Music: Polyphonic singing in Republic of Georgia - A tradition practiced familiarly.

Polyphonic singing in Republic of Georgia

I like home singers,

it is an educative tradition

it is a form of feeling

it is a form of love

making harmony

I salute that form of knowledge.

Poesia - Poesie: Louis Aragon - On dira qu'un homme... - Dirá alguien que un hombre... - Charlot Mystique - Charlot místico - Links



On dira qu'un homme...

On dira qu'un homme
se doit de ne pas exposer son amour
sur la place publique.

Je répondrai qu'un homme
n'a rien de meilleur,
de plus pur, et de plus digne
d'être perpétué que son amour


Dirá alguien que un hombre...

Dirá alguien que un hombre
no debe exponer su amor
en la plaza pública.

Yo responderé que un hombre
no tiene nada mejor,
más puro y más digno
de ser perpetuado, que su amor

Versión de María Dolores Sartorio


Charlot Mystique

L’ascenseur descendait toujours à perdre haleine
Et l’ escalier montait toujours...
Cette dame n’entend pas les discours:
Elle est postiche.
Moi qui déjà songeais à lui parler d’amour!
Oh le commis
Si comique avec sa moustache et ses sourcils
Artificiels!
Il a crié quand je les ai tirés.
Etrange!
Qu’ai-je vu? Cette noble étrangère...
-Monsieur, je ne suis pas une femme légère!
Hou la laide!
"Par bonheur nous avons des valises en peau de porc à toute
épreuve"
celle-ci?
Vingt dollars
Elle en contient mille!
C’est toujours le même système:
Pas de mesure,
Ni de logique, mauvais thème.


Charlot místico

El ascensor descendía siempre hasta perder aliento
y la escalera subía siempre
Esta dama no entiende lo que se habla
es postiza
Yo que ya soñaba con hablarle de amor
Oh el dependiente
tan cómico con su bigote y sus cejas
artificiales
Dio un grito cuando yo tiré de ellos
Qué raro
Qué veo Esa noble extranjera
Señor yo no soy una mujer liviana
Uh la fea
Por suerte nosotros
tenemos valijas de piel de cerdo
a toda prueba
Ésta
Veinte dólares
Y contiene mil
Siempre el mismo sistema
Ni medida
ni lógica
mal tema

Versión de Aldo Pellegrini

Louis Aragon (1897-1982)
