English & Russian
The crow and me
Ворон и я.
Three poems in different styles. It is a kind of mystic experience divided into three parts. First poem is a meeting with the crow, known from childhood, but completely forgotten. The second one is "A minute before a flight". The third one is "The flight".
All three poems are written and translated by the same author. Two of them were written in English and then translated to Russian, and one was written in Russian at first and then translated into English. The native language of the author is Russian, but he's got university degree in English philology - so his English is quite ok. Some words of Russian and English versions may be different, but it is poetry.
