Vladimir Vysotsky. My Gypsy Song.

If Translated by Akbar Muhammad.there’s but a sadness in your soul...

If there’s but


a sadness in your soul,

It’s just a light,


untroublesome cardboard load.

It’s now been made clear,


that they’re completely right,

Those personages who grin,


who so skeptically and darkly grin:

Espousals and feasts


won’t straighten out the line

Some thing has disappeared,


and our sewing tears at the seams.

1970.
