Of Poetry /Какие стихи

Какие стихи искренней? -

Те, которые еще

не написаны.

Какие стихи истенней? -

Те, которые еще

не написаны.

Какие стихи истовей? -

Те, которые еще не написаны.

В каких стихах живет

любовь? -

В тех, какие еще

не созданы -

Так, прекраснее сорванной розы

полевой цветочек несорванный -

любой.

What poems are more sincere?

Ones that are

not written yet.

What poems are most truthful?

Ones that are

not written yet.

What poems are more devout? -

Ones that are

not written yet.

In what poems love is living? -

In ones that are not created yet

As more beautiful than plucked rose

           Wild flower blooming in field

                                   Anyone.
