Poem By Andrey Bely: The Golden Fleece

The Golden Fleece (from ‘Gold in Azure’)
Turning gold, the ether grows translucent,
And between the sea and this sun quiver tongues of gold.
Everywhere golden coins gleam
among splashes of yearning.

Cliff fronts rose
In a fluttering sun-veil.
The sun settled. A cry
full of the screams of albatrosses:

“Children of the sun, once again passionless cold!
It set
golden , ancient fortune —
the golden fleece!”

There is no gleaming golden coin.
The lights of day fade.
But everywhere together with the sun
is the blinding purple of fire.

The slope of the sky is embraced with fire…
And there the Argonauts blow the flying horn
to us…
Hark, hark…
Enough suffering!
Put on the armor
of the sun-veil!

The ancient Argonaut
summons to follow,
he calls
on a golden
horn:
“To the sun, to the sun, those who love freedom,
We shall whirl away into the blue
ether!..”

The ancient Argonaut summons to the sun festival,
trumpeting
on the world growing gold.

All the sky is rubies.
The sun-sphere has fallen asleep.
All the sky is rubies
above us.
On the mountainous heights
our Argo
our Argo,
preparing to fly, began to beat
golden wings.

The earth flies away…
The wine
of the world
blazes
with fire
again:
the golden
fleece,
sparkling,
emerges
to shine
like a burning globe.

And, embraced with brilliance,
our winged Argo
overtakes the luminous day ,
a torch once again burning. Again it overtakes
its golden
fleece…
