“To a Circassian Girl”

 

Her beauty is beyond compare

White as lily-flower, rare

Footsteps – gentle flower petals

Rays of Sun that stately settles

 

Down to the velvet night;

Eyes that shine, so starry-bright.

Swift and soft as morning breeze

Every gesture speaks of peace.

 

Dancing, light as poplar leaves,

Tears as sweet as willow weeps;

Her beauty is beyond compare -

Mute, I won’t even dare.

                                                                                              Konstantin Balmont,             

                                                                                             Impromptu translation.
