Лениво и тяжко плывут облака... (Lenivo i tyazhko plyvut oblaka...) (English translation)

Лениво и тяжко плывут облака...

Лениво и тяжко плывут облака
По синему зною небес.
Дорога моя тяжела, далека,
В недвижном томлении лес.
 
Мой конь утомился, храпит подо мной,
Когда-то родимый приют?..
А там, далеко, из-за чащи лесной
Какую-то песню поют.
 
И кажется: если бы голос молчал,
Мне было бы трудно дышать,
И конь бы, храпя, на дороге упал,
И я бы не мог доскакать!
 
Лениво и тяжко плывут облака,
И лес истомленный вокруг.
Дорога моя тяжела, далека,
Но песня - мой спутник и друг.

Clouds Drift Lazily and Sorely

Clouds drift lazily and sorely
In the azure heat of the heavens.
My path is long and uneasy
In the motionless anguish of woods.
 
My horse is so tired, snorts under me,
Sometime-ago shelter dear to me?
And there, far away, in the thicket of forest
A trace of a sung song wind carries.
 
It seems if the voice was silent,
It would be difficult to breathe,
And horse, snorting, would fall to the ground,
And I would be unable to ride!
 
Clouds drift lazily and sorely
In the azure heat of the heavens.
My path is long and uneasy
In the motionless anguish of woods.
 
Thanks!

A very poetic translation, Deanna. But I think you've copied the last stanza...?
