Millions of Sparrows

The sun is dark yellow.
The willow leaves
are mirrors ringing
above the illuminated waters.

The sun is swelling
and reddening low down in the west.
It becomes a space-ship.
Millions of sparrows

They shout at me
that the whole planet is in danger
and I am to blame.

Translated by Alicia Suskin Ostriker and Vladimir Levchev
