Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Just a small poem about pirate sub on russian.

Холодный ветер, безмятежность льдин,
Луны незаживающая рана
И бронзовые иглы субмарин
Ласкают черный бархат океана.

Оставив за спиной тяжелый джин,
Холодный джаз, отчаянье глухое
В безмолвных измерениях глубин
Скользят сквозь тьму злодеи и герои

Идет игра; они напряжены,
Они - художники и ювелиры,
И разрывает кокон тишины
Удар торпеды, как укол рапиры.

"Вперед!" Горят глаза морских бродяг,
"Вперед!" - ревут прокуренные глотки
И на корме подводной лодки
На волю ветра рвется черный флаг.

Ok, a quick run through google translater (which I'm sure isn't 100% correct) gives us this....

A cold wind, serenity floes
Moon's open wound
And the bronze needles submarines
Black velvet caress of the ocean.

Leaving behind the gin
Cool jazz, a dull despair
In the silent depth measurements
Glide through the darkness villains and heroes

There is a game, and they are stretched,
They - the artists and jewelers,
And breaks the cocoon of silence
Beat the torpedoes, like a shot rapiers.

"Forward!" Burning eyes marine vagrants,
"Forward!" - Roaring stained pharyngeal
And the stern of the submarine
At the will of the wind rushes black flag.

Im no poetry critic, but I like the atmosphere of the poem, thank you for sharing and keep up the good work 8)

I can't read it, but it's poetry, and poetry is best left untranslated.

If I learn to read Russian one day, I'll come back and enjoy it.

Thank you for sharing your writing with us!

While I can't read it I do say that it's cool that you're writing dieselpunk poetry. Keep it up.

Well, about 1 per cent of community members (including your humble servant) don't need a translation. With all respect towards your poetry I wish the blogposts here could embrace broader audience.

I'll try to translate it, but i can't promise very good translation - i don't know english so good.
