Wide open gates…

Wide open gates,
Linden wretchedly naked,
Dry and dark gilding
Indestructible concave wall.

Rumble full of altars and tombs,
And the Dnieper a ringing flies.
So heavy bell Mazepa
On the Sofia area is buzzing.

All the dreadful rages, nepreklonnыy,
Like here heretics executed,
And in the woods beyond the rivers, reconciled,
Cheers fluffy lisenyat.

1921
