A Question

A voice said, Look me in the stars
And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars
Were not too much to pay for birth.

Он говорил: "Меня найдите в звёздных облаках.
Скажите честно мне, о, сыновья земли,
Что раны тела и души – не так уж высока
Цена того, что вас на свет произвели."
