Teasdale, Sara: There Will Come Soft Rains

Portre of Teasdale, Sara

There Will Come Soft Rains (English)

There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground,
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;

And frogs in the pools, singing at night,
And wild plum trees in tremulous white,

Robins will wear their feathery fire,
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;

And not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it is done.

Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree,
If mankind perished utterly;

And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn,
Would scarcely know that we were gone.

Будет ласковый дождь (Russian)

Будет ласковый дождь, будет запах земли.
Щебет юрких стрижей от зари до зари,

И ночные рулады лягушек в прудах.
И цветение слив в белопенных садах;

Огнегрудый комочек слетит на забор,
И малиновки трель выткет звонкий узор.

И никто, и никто не вспомянет войну
Пережито-забыто, ворошить ни к чему

И ни птица, ни ива слезы не прольет,
Если сгинет с Земли человеческий род

И весна... и Весна встретит новый рассвет
Не заметив, что нас уже нет.
