I am the last poet of the village,
Modest songs boardwalk bridge.
During a farewell stand impoverish
kadja leafy birches.

Golden flame will burn down
From the solid wax candle,
And the moon clock wood
Prohripyat my twelfth hour.

On the trail of blue field
coming Soon iron the guest.
oat Grass, dawn of the shed,
it will Gather a handful of black.

Not living someone else’s hands,
These songs do not live with you!
Only the stalks are-horses
On the old host to grieve.

Will the wind to suck their neighing,
coping Requiem dance.
soon, Soon clock wood
Prohripyat my twelfth hour!
