A Muse - 1887 by Konstantin Korovin
A Muse – 1887 by Konstantin Korovin
В младенчестве моем она меня любилаIn the days of my youth she was fond of me,
И семиствольную цевницу мне вручила.And the seven-stemmed flute she handed me.
Она внимала мне с улыбкой — и слегка,To me with smile she listened; and already gently
По звонким скважинам пустого тростника,Along the openings echoing of the woods
Уже наигрывал я слабыми перстамиWas playing I with fingers tender:
И гимны важные, внушенные богами,Both hymns solemn, god-inspired
И песни мирные фригийских пастухов.And peaceful song of Phrygian shepherd.
С утра до вечера в немой тени дубовFrom morn till night in oak’s dumb shadow
Прилежно я внимал урокам девы тайной,To the strange maid’s teaching intent I listened;
И, радуя меня наградою случайной,And with sparing reward me gladdening
Откинув локоны от милого чела,Tossing back her curls from her forehead dear,
Сама из рук моих свирель она брала.From my hands the flute herself she took.
Тростник был оживлен божественным дыханьемNow filled the wood was with breath divine
И сердце наполнял святым очарованьем.And the heart with holy enchantment filled.

I hope you enjoyed this poem as much as I did
