The Tale of The Blind Beast

Сказка о слепом звере.


Белёсым утром шла она 

по серой мостовой

И хмурый город окружал 

ее сплошной стеной.


Мышастых мыслей череда,

и скучных планов день:

пойти туда, потом сюда,

и снова юркнуть в тень.


От встреченной нелепости

расширила глаза - 

из беспросветной серости

возникла бирюза.


Абсурдно-синий зверь сказал:

“Пойдешь вперед со мной?

Боюсь свалиться я с моста,

ведь я совсем слепой.”


Послушно двинулась за ним,

скрывая дрожь в ногах.

«Твой город сказочно красив», -

вновь произнес чужак.


«Как можешь ты о нем судить?!

Ведь ты сказал, что слеп!

Мой город скучен, и уныл,

и мрачен, словно склеп!»


“Ты слышала как нежно здесь 

звонят колокола?”

“Они звонили час назад,

но я еще спала.”


“Вечерний дождик так стучал

по крышам озорнО...”

«Я именно поэтому 

захлопнула окно.”


“...А ветер всё перебирал

струны проводов...”

“Недолго насморк подхватить

от этих сквозняков”


«Так листья пахли поутру,

омытые дождем…»

«Сказала же - я утром сплю!

Нет времени, идем!»


«…и свежих булок аромат

в пекарне на углу…»

«Я, между прочим, хлеб не ем -

фигуру берегу.»


“Хоть я и слеп, но вижу я,

что больше зряч, чем ты,

которая в обыденном

не видит красоты.


Закрой глаза и волю дай

фантазиям своим.

И станет город твой тогда

как радуга, цветным.”

The Tale of the Blind Beast.

__________________________________


On a white morning she walked


On the gray sidewalk


And the gloomy city surrounded her


She was surrounded by a solid wall.


A mousy train of thoughts,


and dull plans for the day:


To go this way, then that way,


and then back into the shadows again.


"And from the absurdity of the encounter.


"I widened my eyes


out of the blackness of grayness


emerged turquoise.


The absurdly blue beast said:


"Will you come forward with me?


I'm afraid I'll fall off the bridge,


for I am quite blind."


Obediently she followed him,


hiding the trembling in her legs.


"Your city is fabulously beautiful,"


the stranger said again.


"How can you judge it!


For you said you were blind!


My city is dull, and dreary,


and gloomy as a crypt!"


"Hast thou heard how softly here


the bells are ringing?"


"They rang an hour ago,


but I was still asleep."


"The evening rain was so pounding


on the roofs mischievously..."


"That's exactly why


"I shut the window."


"...And the wind kept playing


"the wire strings..."


"It doesn't take long to catch a cold


"from these draughts."


"That's how the leaves smelled in the morning,


"washed by the rain..."


"I told you, I sleep in the morning!


No time, let's go!"


"...and the aroma of fresh buns


"...in the bakery on the corner..."


"I don't eat bread, by the way.


"I'm saving my figure."


"I may be blind, but I can see


"I see that I am more sighted than you,


"who in the commonplace


"I see more sight than thou that seest not in the common.


"Close your eyes and let your fantasies


"and let your fantasies run wild.


"And then your city will be...


Like a rainbow of color."
