mounds of human heads

Standard

Untitled
Osip Mandelstam
Mounds of human heads are wandering in the distance.
I dwindle among them. Nobody sees me. But in books
much loved, and in children’s games I shall rise
from the dead to say the sun is shining.

Original

Уходят вдаль людских голов бугры:
Я уменьшаюсь там — меня уж не заметят,
Но в книгах ласковых и в играх детворы
Воскресну я сказать, как солнце светит…
