Nikolai Aseyev: Holiday (1928)

When in June,
from eight o’clock,
the cruel
jasmine crashes
with heavy moisture
of the branches,
then –
summer has come.
Waves of milk
will spill, branches
of chestnut trees
will blaze with leaves
or –
dawning lindens.
Then,
wherever you go,
the green silk
of Moscow rustles,
embroidered with
bunches of flowers,
rustles,
burns
and breathes!
I do not know how
and for whom
but on five days
Neskuchny
waves
his sleeve to me,
calls
with a cool echo;
and at noon,
in the full heat –
a muslin
canopy of light – in Serebryany Bor
gray shadows glide
from branches.
How good it is
to climb
into deep shade
from five o’clock!
In Moscow –
at least you roll a ball,
Moscow then
is empty.
And suddenly a flood
of motley din,
a discordant chorus
of human voices
rushing through the meadows
of the Sparrow Hills.
I feel good with people
when
they hurry
to rest
and the water
gently splashes
on the sides
of speeding boats.
I feel good
when they
have stretched their burdened
shoulders, spread
peaceful lights
into the bluish evening.
And on the outskirts already,
at the junctions of the rail
lame – then an evening later fresher –
the rows of trams are longer;
they ring insistently, call impatiently
to carry us home, like puppies, tired and happy.

Николай Асеев: День отдыха (1928)

Когда в июнь
часов с восьми
жестокий
врежется жасмин
тяжёлой влажью
веток,
тогда —
настало лето.
Прольются
волны молока,
пойдут
листвою полыхать
каштанов ветви
либо —
зареющие липы.
Тогда,
куда бы ты ни шел,
шумит Москвы
зелёный шелк,
цветков
пучками вышит,
шумит,
горит
и дышит!
Не знаю, как
и для кого,
но мне
по пятидневкам
Нескучный
машет рукавом,

зовет
прохладным эхом;
и в полдень,
в самую жару —
кисейный
полог света —
скользят
в Серебряном бору
седые тени
с веток.
Как хорошо
часов с пяти
забраться
в тень густую!
В Москве —
хоть шаром покати,
Москва
тогда пустует.
И вдруг нахлынет
пёстрый гам
людским
нестройным хором
и понесётся
по лугам,
по Воробьевым
горам.
Мне хорошо с людьми,
когда
они спешат
на отдых,
и плещет
ласково вода
в борты
бегущих лодок.
Мне хорошо,
когда они,
размяв
от ноши
плечи,
разложат
мирные огни
в голубоватый
вечер.
А на окраинах
уже,
по стыкам рельс
хромая, —
чем вечер позже
и свежей —
длинней
ряды трамваев;
они
настойчиво звенят,
зовут
нетерпеливо
нести
домой нас,
как щенят,
усталых
и счастливых.

The poet writes about the Sparrow Hills and Neskuchny Garden in Moscow. This area is located in the south-west of the city and considered as belonging to the «seven hills of Moscow». In the east, the Sparrow Hills border on Neskuchny Garden. They rise 80 metres high, on the south side of the Moscow River.

Поэт пишет о Воробьёвых горах и Нескучном саду в Москве. Воробьёвы горы — местность на юго-западе Москвы, считаются одним из «семи холмов Москвы». На востоке граничат с Нескучным садом. Возвышаются над Москвой-рекой до 80 метров.

Тhe Sparrow Hills are a beautiful place to visit in Moscow. This high bank of the Moscow River has at all times attracted attention with its dense forest and wonderful views of the river. The Sparrow Hills offer a wide and picturesque panorama of the capital city.

Воробьёвы горы — одно из красивейших мест в Москве. Высокий правый берег Москвы-реки во все времена привлекал к себе внимание густым лесом, сложным рельефом и чудесным видом, открывающимся на реку. С Воробьёвых гор открывается самая широкая и живописная панорама столицы.

The Sparrow Hills are named after the village, which existed here since the beginning of the 14th century. Its original owners were the boyars Vorobyovy, which means «sparrow» in English.

Название Воробьёвых гор — по имени села Воробьёва, существовавшего здесь с начала XIV века, названного так по имени его первоначальных владельцев бояр Воробьёвых.

In the 19th century, the Sparrow Hills became a popular summer resort, where wealthy Muscovites owned dachas, holiday cottages.

С конца XIX века Воробьёвы горы — популярное дачное место для загородного отдыха москвичей.

Ivan Aivazovsky, «Sparrow Hills» – Иван Айвазовский, «Воробьёвы горы» (1871):

In the 20th century, the Sparrow Hills became a favourite place for folk festivals: on Sundays and holidays, crowds of people walked on the paths through the wood or took boat rides.

В начале XX века «Воробьёвка» была любимым местом народных гуляний: по воскресным и праздничным дням народ толпами шёл сюда по Воробьёвскому шоссе или переплавлялся на лодках.

Apollinary Vasnetsov, «Sparrow Hills» – Аполлинарий Васнецов, «Воробьёвы горы» (1879):

Each courtyard had a garden with samovars on tables, and people visited Krynkin’s restaurant on the slope of the Sparrow Hills.

При каждом дворе был садик со столиками самоваров.Там же, на склоне Воробьёвых гор, находился ресторан Крынкина.

Krynkin’s restaurant – ресторан Крынкина:

In 1987, the Sparrow Hills were declared a natural monument, and in 1998, the State Nature Reserve was created, a specially protected natural area.

В 1987 году Воробьёвы горы были объявлены памятником природы. В 1998 году был создан Государственный природный заказник «Воробьёвы горы», объявленный особо охраняемой природной территорией.

The Sparrow Hills are covered by an old forest, consisting mainly of linden, oak, maple, birch and ash: the roots of these trees keep the steep slopes from erosion. Under the forest canopy, among other herbaceous plants, lilies of the valley, bluebells, lungwort and corydalis can be found.

Почти на всем протяжении Воробьёвы горы покрывает старый лес, состоящий преимущественно из липы, дуба, клёна, берёзы и ясеня: корни деревьев закрепляют крутые склоны от эрозии. Под пологом леса в числе других травянистых растений встречаются ландыши, колокольчики, медуница, хохлатки.

The fauna of the park is also diverse: squirrels and moles, nightingales and warblers live here. The long-eared owl, raven and gray owl are listed in the Red Book of the city of Moscow. In the sky above the Nature Reserve you can see falcons, sparrowhawks, kestrels.

Разнообразен и животный мир парка: здесь живут белки и кроты, соловьи и пеночки. Ушастая сова, ворон и серая неясыть занесены в Красную книгу города Москвы. В небе над природным заказником можно увидеть сокола, ястреба-перепелятника, пустельгу.

Nikolai Nikolaevich Aseyev (1889 – 1963). He was born in Lgov, Kursk province, Russian Empire and died in Moscow, USSR. The Russian poet, translator and screenwriter became a leader of Russian Futurism. He was also a member of the Union of «Chairmen of the Globe» and a laureate of the Stalin Prize, first degree (1941).

Николай Николаевич Асеев (1889, Льгов, Курская губерния, Российская империя — 1963, Москва, СССР) — русский советский поэт, переводчик и сценарист, деятель русского футуризма. Член союза «Председателей земного шара». Лауреат Сталинской премии первой степени (1941).

  45. Thank you for your nice words, dear Giorgio. This summer is not so very hot in Moscow. Maybe the heat will arrive in July? Tango was born in Argentina, your father’s country. However, there is also a «Russian tango». Soviets and Latin Americans had close ties.

    Here there are 30° today… but windy. Really my grandfather was born in Argentina, but was brought to Italy when he was a child; I have never knew him, he died in 1944, so I have only a photo of him, and few other things. Lost in the civil war… killed by partisans, his body was never found. Perhaps he returned to Argentina, and danced the tango… 😁
