1925: The Copper Tambourine of the Night

Maximilian Voloshin - Copper Tambourine of the Night (1925)

Maximilian Voloshin: Медный бубен ночи [The Copper Tambourine of the Night] (1925)

The pearl bejeweling the quiet of night,
The gem of the lagoon’s star-studded base!
Your light makes young and pallid every face,
Thorn-apple longs for You in love-lorn plight.

from Lunaria (Constantine Rusanov, trans.)
