To The States [To Identify the 16th, 17th, or 18th Presidentiad]


Why reclining, interrogating? why myself and all drowsing?
What deepening twilight-scum floating atop of the waters,
Who are they as bats and night-dogs askant in the capitol?
What a filthy Presidentiad! (O South, your torrid suns! O North, your arctic freezings!)
Are those really Congressmen? are those the great Judges? is that the President?
Then I will sleep awhile yet, for I see that these States sleep, for reasons;
(With gathering murk, with muttering thunder and lambent shoots we all duly awake,
South, North, East, West, inland and seaboard, we will surely awake.)



Вот какая прелестная поэзия! Это тебе не Дёма Быкин. (Перевода не даю: кашкинский "не доносит", а другаго искать или самому делать вломакъ).
Но что вот так заругался? 18-й през изображен на большой бамашке (пока еще 1500 р.), а 16-й просто обожествлен.
