Here it is, this translation: [Elizabeth, thank you for the consultation :) ! All the rest may be wrong, though :roll: … ] If You Want All of us need someone We could love. And if you want, you can come to love me. And all of us need someone to beat, To torture, mutilate, or even kill. And if you wa...

Hi Docck! Yes, of course, I’ll try. My English is poor, too, though, but… well, I’ll translate, and you’ll read and maybe add something. So we’ll, probably, “create” something more or less acceptable together. It’ll take some time, however. I liked Naumenko. Didn’t hear too much by him, but really l...

Hi Rick, Paris sounds great :D ! And I think it must be ideal for the perfect wine tasting, as well :) . Washington is as good as Paris, of course, but it’s so far... So here’re the Horses: Fastidious Horses Along the gap, right by the cliff, where the edge is very narrow With the whip I lash my hor...

:lol: Hi Rick!
Actually, I already have a translation of the Horses, and quite a poetic one - with rhythm, rhymes, all those things. It wasn't made by me, though... and, yet, I surely have nothing against a dinner or some wine :wink: :D !
And... I'll put the text here when I find it :) .

Yours,
TH.

Hi Bee, Nice to see you :D ! Thank you! I don’t know why, but having found that discussion upon the White Nights, I thought of that very song (it wasn’t mentioned there which one was used in the movie). Oh, I llllllove it! That’s amazing - to learn that it really was “The Horses”. Well, now I just m...

Hi Rick, Thanks for the links! And you’re welcome :) ! I still translated other version completely: Everything had turned out all right not at one stroke, Moscow wasn’t built in a moment. Moscow didn’t believe in tears, But it believed in love. Dusted with snow, Bewitched by leafage, It’ll find the ...

Hi Rick, I don’t remember for sure, but still think that version must be in the movie. At least, the lines of the first verse correspond to its name: Everything had turned out all right not at one stroke, Moscow wasn’t built in a moment. Moscow didn’t believe in tears, But it believed in love… and s...

Hi Rick, [Elizabeth, thank you for the invitation :) ] Here’s a translation: Everything had turned out all right not at one stroke, Moscow wasn't built in a moment. It burned so many times, And grew from the ashes. A tree stretched to the sky, And believed only the sky, And besides the sky, It belie...

:lol: Ahhh, Mirek, I'm just fascinated with that incredibly, amazingly, inconceivably exhausting information :lol: ! "Big tits"... well, that's seem to be an oxymoron... but only from the point of view of an everyday logic I believe... both "big" and "small" are relative concepts, and they're pretty...

It may be an "archaic" name for them :? ... It often occurs that our English-Russian/Russian-English dictionaries show some words which are almost out of use at present - it looks like too much time passes from beginning of information gathering to the end :wink: . It may be just such a case :? ...

Hi Margaret,
I mean such little birds with yellow bellies which my dictionary calls, in the first place, "titmouse" - when they fly one at time :wink: :) . Are they "titmice" when they appear all together?
Okay, it calls them "tits" and "blue-tits", as well :) .

It's always delighted me, this diversity of perceptions and interpretations - and it always will! As for me, having read the text for the first time, I definitely perceived these words as addressed to a person - to a listener with whom the author, probably, shared his views upon the life as a whole,...

WoW! So beautiful, indeed! And... they're many here - those ones who try in their way to be free, yeah :wink: ? We have here trushes and starlings but, in fact, I'm an absolute dummy in respect of ornithology :roll: so can discern only pigeons, crows and sparrows... oh, and titmouses, as well... :lol:
