Safe in their Alabaster Chambers –

by Emily Dickinson

Safe in their Alabaster Chambers –
Untouched by Morning
and untouched by Noon –
Sleep the meek members of the Resurrection –
Rafter of satin,
and Roof of stone.

Light laughs the breeze
in her Castle of sunshine; above them
Babbles the bee in a stolid Ear;
Pipe the Sweet Birds in ignorant cadence –
Ah, what sagacity perished here!

Grand go the Years – in the Crescent – above them –
Worlds scoop their Arcs –
and Firmaments – row –
Diadems – drop and Doges – surrender –
Soundless as dots – on a Disk of Snow –

Укрыта в Покоях из алебастра –
Утро не тронет,
День не слепит –
лежит Воскресения мирная паства –
стропила – атлас –
крыша – гранит.

Эры шествуют Полумесяцем млечным –
Миры выгнут арки –
Катятся сферы –
Диадемы – падают –
Дожи – сдаются –
На Диске из снега.
(неполный перевод Веры Марковой)
