‘The trees are drawn up in a row…’ (Vladimir Salimon)

The trees are drawn up in a row
and mostly looking the other way
as though peering in the stream below
so blue in the heat of this midday.

They keep on standing, do not give way
upon the river’s stony shore
as for themselves, they will not bathe
and will not let us bathe, any more.

 

Деревья выстроились в линию
по большей части к нам спиной,
как будто бы на речку синюю
они глядят в полдневный зной.

Они стоят, не расступаются,
по каменистым берегам,
и сами в речке не купаются,
и не дают купаться нам.
