A Late Walk

When I go up through the mowing field,
The headless aftermath,
Smooth-laid like thatch with the heavy dew,
Half closes the garden path.
And when I come to the garden ground,
The whir of sober birds
Up from the tangle of withered weeds
Is sadder than any words.
A tree beside the wall stands bare,
But a leaf that lingered brown,
Disturbed, I doubt not, by my thought,
Comes softly rattling down.
I end not far from my going forth
By picking the faded blue
Of the last remaining aster flower
To carry again to you.

Поздняя прогулка

Versions: #1#2
Вот по отаве я иду,
Чуть смоченной росой,
И стебли прикрывают путь
Соломенной копной.
Когда же в сад я захожу,
Звук птичьих голосов
Над порослью засохших трав
Печальней всяких слов.
К стене прижался голый ствол,
И только бурый лист,
Смущен вниманием моим,
Бесшумно вниз скользит.
Прельщенный астры красотой,
Цветок срываю я,
И пусть поблекла синева,
Бери – она твоя!
