*And yet another one of my translations, this one is fresh and it's a poem by V. Vysotsky.

The pretty ones are dearly loved and softly
The funny ones are loved but for long
The silent ones are loved, but not as often
But if they’re loved, -- then oh how strong!

Do not yell loving words, do not yell
Hold them in until time is better
Let the steamboats bugle like hell
But you -- do not tell, do not tell
If you hurry-- you’ll lose her forever.

She often reads about love and woe
Allow her to compare, -- just try to,
Because the darker tulips grow
To make the whiter ones seem brighter.

Do not yell loving words, do not yell
Hold them in until time is better
Let the poets and rooks sing like hell
But you -- do not tell, do not tell
If you hurry-- you’ll lose her forever.

The words are flowing... So what then?
Although you’re late – there’s no regret!
Say the words, -- you know that you can
If they simply cannot not be said!

Do not yell loving words, do not yell
Hold them in until time is better
Let the steamboats bugle like hell
Do not scream, do not yell, do not tell
If you hurry-- you’ll lose her forever.

I hope you're not too tired of these, but I get so much pleasure from translating and lately I haven't been able to write anything new.
