Alec Vagapov's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: A Girl Sang A Song by Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Blok (8/18/2007 2:34:00 AM)

    Instead of writing a comment I would rather offer my own version of translation of this poem.
    Thank you
    Alec Vagapov


    ***
    The girl was singing in a church choir,
    About the weary abroad, far away,
    About the ships in the sea, so dire,
    And those who'd forgotten their happy day.

    So sweet was her voice flying up into highness
    With shimmering beam on her shoulder of white,
    And every one listened watching from darkness
    The way the white garment was singing in light.

    And every one thought that the joy was there,
    That the ships were all in a quiet bay,
    And the weary people abroad, full of care,
    Were now all blessed with a happy day.

    The voice was sweet, and the beam was shining,
    And only up there at the royal rack
    A child, conversant with secret, was crying
    That nobody, really, would ever come back.

    August, 1905
