Животные инстинкты | Zhivotnyye instinkty

Я - не ханжа. Я - за животные инстинкты!
Любовь - как у волков: чтоб раз - и на всю жизнь!
Дворняг не уподоблюсь стае дикой:
У них свободы - кучи! Только нет семьи!

Animal Instincts

I'm not a prude. I always vote for instincts!
To love like wolves do: once and for all!
I'll never become like the flocks of mongrels:
They have got heaps of freedom but no household!
Please don't hesitate to correct me, especially if the translation language is your native language.
With Best Regards,

I like your translating very much! But... maybe not "a heap of freedom" but "heaps of freedom"? Sorry, I am not sure too

"a heap" звучит плавнее - добавляется одна гласная, и фраза звучит на одном дыхании, особо не меняя смысла. Regular smile
сначала хотел "a lot" написать, потом вспомнил, что знаю слово "куча" Wink smile

Я эту фразочку со словаря списала. Обычно сама путаюсь в подобных изречениях. У Вас великолепный перевод, спасибо!

ханжа -> I don't know that word, but looking at wikislovar it seems to me "hypocrite" would better fit the context (though "prude" would be ok in some other cases).

Why not? Regular smile These are synonyms

To love like wolves do -> "I love..." sounds more natural to me. "to love" sounds like an infinitive.

I wanted to put an infinitive there. My idea actually was: {I prefer} to love...

petit élève wrote:

heaps of freedom -> I agree, the plural sounds much better. Similar to "lots of freedom" or "freedom aplenty/galore".

household -> not quite sure that works here. Why not simply "no family" ?

Rhymes Wink smile

While I admire rhymed poetic translations, the rhymes are not enough: the meter needs to be made consistent throughout (even though the original is not perfectly metered).
L2 is missing a beat (around "once")
L3: stressing "a" is undesirable in poetry, probably needs to be rearranged.
L4: "a heaps" needs correcting.

"the flocks of mongrels" There is no such thing, and the household is not a family.

Marica NicolskaMarica Nicolska    Tor, 12/12/2019 - 10:03

Oh, I am not sure, but I was ready to say "the household" too! What would be better to say?

Treugol'nyTreugol'ny    Tor, 12/12/2019 - 10:14

They have... just don't have a family. A pack of mongrels, (a flock of birds).

Marica NicolskaMarica Nicolska    Fre, 13/12/2019 - 17:17

Maybe...What does a native speaker think about it?

Treugol'nyTreugol'ny    Fre, 13/12/2019 - 20:57

I'm not a native speaker, but flock of dogs is absolutely wrong.Also, household is not a family.
