Tropa k Vesne (Path to the Spring)

Zarya poutru
Prosnyotsya,
Vody naberu
V kolodtse,
Gde zimnyaya noch'
Spit podo l'dom…

Iz snov ispeku
Lepyoshku,
Dobro soberu
V dorozhku
I k solntsu pojdu
V tselinu, v step'
Tropoj mlechnoyu

SHag
Za shagom…
Vedi
Iz mraka,
Tropa k vesne

Sled -
Vdal' vejsya,
Taj, sneg,
Razlejsya
Tropoj k vesne

I pust' mne navstrech' –
Pechali,
Meteli, kak volch'i stai,
I vetry zimy –
Belaya smert'…

Promchatsya nazad –
Za spinu,
Sorvut chto s menya –
To skinu,
CHtob solntsu predstat'
Lish' tak kak est'
Na trope mlechnoj

SHag
Za shagom…
Vedi
Iz mraka,
Tropa k vesne

Sled -
Vdal' vejsya,
Taj, sneg,
Razlejsya
Tropoj k vesne

***

I skhodyat snega,
I l'yotsya
Doroga-reka,
Kolodtsy
Napolnyatsya vnov'
ZHivoj vodoj

Protalin holmy –
Pod solntsem,
ZHdyot Vestnik vesny,
Smeyotsya,
On vstretil menya
Zvyozdnoj tropoj
Tropoj mlechnoyu


Translation

Morning down
Will wake, and I
Will draw water
Form a well
Where winter night
Dreams under ice…

From the dreams
I’ll bake a flatbread,
I’ll gather good
Into the path, and
I’ll go to the sun
In virgin lands, into the steppe
By milky trail

Step
By step…
Lead
From the murk,
Path to the spring

Trace,
Wind away,
Snow, melt down,
Overflow
As a path to spring

And let me meet -
Sorrows,
Blizzards like wolf packs,
And the winds of winter -
White death…

They will fly back –
Behind me,
What they’ll tear off me –
I’ll throw off,
So I’ll stay before the sun
Only as it is
On the milky trail

Step
By step…
Lead
From the murk,
Path to the spring

Trace,
Wind away,
Snow, melt down,
Overflow
As a path to spring

***

And the snow melts,
And there flows
The road-river,
The wells
Will fill up again
With living water

Thawed-patched hills -
Under the sun,
Herald of spring awaits,
Laughs,
He met me
With the star track
With the milky trail
