Si mort à mors (перевод на Английский)

перевод на АнглийскийАнглийский
A A

If dead at last

If the dull grey mornings start to colour
And they gain a tinge in the fading of the night
Dim tomorrows will come
Golden centuries will return, a hundred times thousand, and a thousand dawns more
 
If dead at last the duchess, noble lady
When nothing but corpse dust remains
May her golden-lined heart sleep
Golden centuries will return, a hundred times thousand, and a thousand dawns more
 
If the feasting kings lie dying
If their prisons are bottomless cages
May the hour of escape come
Golden centuries will return, a hundred times thousand, and a thousand dawns more
 
If dead at last ...
 
If a thousand suns of metal take flight
Ten thousand crystal suns work wonders
May come the vermillion lights
Golden centuries will return, a hundred times thousand, and a thousand dawns more
 
If dead at last ...
 
When a thousand brigands divide the highest bid
Ten thousand children make silver from the streams
May come the safran blooms
Golden centuries will return, a hundred times thousand, and a thousand dawns more

Комментарий:

Much of these lyrics is poetic, but rather simply termed at the same time, which makes a "vanilla" translation somewhat challenging. This is especially true for the term "mort à mors". I took some liberties, interpreting it as related to "biting the dust"; and also turning some "si"s (strictly: if) into a "when" or even an "and". In my opinion, sticking with very literal translations would have produced a very dry translation that would have fallen short of the dream-like, mystical flair in the original. If someone has deeper insights into the artist's preferred contexts (e.g. mysticism or similar), that would certainly help improve the translation.

Apart from that, "Viennent l'heure des évasions" should probably be "Vienne ..."
