Russian

I skazal Gospod'... (И сказал Господь...)

И сказал Господь:
— Молодая плоть,
Встань!
 
И вздохнула плоть:
— Не мешай, Господь,
Спать.
 
Хочет только мира
Дочь Иаира. —
 
И сказал Господь:
— Спи.

And The Lord Has Said...

And the Lord has said:
"Young flesh, raise your head,
Rise!"
 
And the flesh sighed, bored:
"Let me sleep, my Lord,
Tight.
 
Only peace desires
Daughter of Jairus."
 
And the Lord has said:
"Sleep."
