Stephen Crane (Стивен Крейн)


"Truth," said a traveller


”Truth,” said a traveller,
”Is a rock, a mighty fortress;
Often have I been to it,
Even to its highest tower,
From whence the world looks black.”

”Truth,” said a traveller,
”Is a breath, a wind,
A shadow, a phantom;
Long have I pursued it,
But never have I touched
The hem of its garment.”

And I believed the second traveller;
For truth was to me
A breath, a wind,
A shadow, a phantom,
And never had I touched
The hem of its garment.



Stephen Crane's other poems:
  1. "Have you ever made a just man?"
  2. I have heard the sunset song of the birches
  3. On the desert
  4. To the maiden
  5. A spirit sped
