The Birdlet

Alexander Pushkin

 

Found in the book
Poems by Alexander Pushkin
Ivan Panin, trans.
(Available as FREE Ebook

God’s birdlet knows
Nor care, nor toil;
Nor weaves it painfully
An everlasting nest.
Thro’ the long night on the twig it slumbers;
When rises the red sun
Birdie listens to the voice of God
And it starts, and it sings.
When Spring, Nature’s Beauty,
And the burning summer have passed,
And the fog, and the rain,
By the late fall are brought,
Men are wearied, men are grieved,
But birdie flies into distant lands,
Into warm climes, beyond the blue sea:
Flies away until the spring.
