дом семья

Family home

A poem about family being a home

(Anonymous author, edited translation, by Fledermaus, unrhymed, unmetered0

And a family is a home,
These are two and the third,
And, perhaps, the fourth,
And then the fifth.
These are warm lines
In the desired envelope,
If separation is waving
Its sad wing.

And the family is the light,
What is invisible and so  generous
Whatilluminates the whole life
And what  accompanies us.
This is creativity,
Where there are neither the last nor the first,
Where there is both joy and sorrow –
Always in half. Always split.

And family is everything.
It gets cold without it
It gets abysmally lonely
A life of solitude
In which nothing happens
In the world nothing is closer than it
Nothing, no matter how you think
And no matter how brave you are to deny it.


The end, Russian text follows


дом семья – стихотворение о доме и семье

А семья – это дом,
Это двое и третий,
И, быть может, четвёртый,
И пятый потом.
Это тёплые строки
В желанном конверте,
Если машет разлука
Печальным крылом.

А семья – это свет,
Что незримо и щедро
Озаряет всю жизнь
И сопутствует нам.
Это – творчество,
Где ни последних, ни первых,
Где и радость, и горе –
Всегда пополам.

А семья – это всё.
Без неё холодеет
Одинокая мысль,
Одинокая жизнь.
Ничего не бывает
На свете роднее,
Ничего, как ни думай
И как ни храбрись…
