Addis Ababa, Sity of roses, Nikolay Gumilev, Еnglish subtitles


>>Nikolay Gumilev – Addis Ababa, Sity of roses. Addis Ababa, Sity of roses.
Near the banks of transparent streams,
Heavenly jinn brought you here,
A diamond, amidst gloomy gorges. Armida’s garden … There a pilgrim
Keeps his oath of obscure love*
(Mind you, we all bow before him),
And the roses cloy, the roses red. There, full of slyness and poison,
Ogle’s some gaze into the soul,
Via forests of tall sycamores,
And alleyways of dusky platans. Addis Ababa, Sity of roses.
Near the banks of transparent streams,
Heavenly jinn brought you here,
A diamond, amidst gloomy gorges.
