Marina Tsvetayeva - Kto doma Nye Stroil (Кто до́ма не строил…) (English translation)


Kto doma Nye Stroil (Кто до́ма не строил…)

Кто до́ма не строил —
Земли недостоин.
Кто дома не строил —
Не будет землёю:
Соломой — золою…
— Не строила дома.

Who Did Not Build House...

Who did not build house -
Ain't worthy the ground.
Who did not build house -
Will not be the ground:
Straw will turn to ashes...
- I did not build house.
