  • Кроме любви твоей,
    нету мор�?,
    а у любви твоей и плачем не вымолишь отдых.
    Захочет поко�? у�?тавший �?лон -
    цар�?твенный л�?жет в опожаренном пе�?ке.

    Besides your love
    I have
    no ocean
    and your love won't grant even a tearful plea for rest.
    When a tired elephant wants peace
    he lies down regally in the firebound sand.

    - V. Mayakovsky, 'Лиличка!/Lilichka!'.
