The Birch Tree (Береза)

Russian

Береза

Белая береза
Под моим окном
Принакрылась снегом,
Точно серебром.
 
На пушистых ветках
Снежною каймой
Распустились кисти
Белой бахромой.
 
И стоит береза
В сонной тишине,
И горят снежинки
В золотом огне.
 
А заря, лениво
Обходя кругом,
обсыпает ветки
Новым серебром.
 
Сергей Есенин

The Birch Tree

Graceful slender white birch
Under window base
Dressed itself in crisp snow
Like in silver lace.
 
On the fluffy branches
As a snowy edge
Crystal clusters blossomed
Into full white fledge.
 
And the birch tree stands still,
Sleepy silent dame,
And the snowflakes glow bright
With the golden flame.
 
And the dawn walks round
At a lazy pace,
Sprinkling birch tree branches
With new silver lace.
