Злата Раздолина - Композитор, автор - исполнитель - 'Я мечтою ловил уходящие тени' стихи Константин Бальмонт
I caught the fleeting shadows with my dreams,
the fleeting shadows of a dimming day.
I ascended the tower, and the steps shook,
the steps shook under my feet.
The higher I went, the clearer they became visible,
the clearer they became visible, the features ahead.
And some kind of sounds were heard far away,
all around me they were heard from the Heavens and the Earth.
The higher I went, the brighter they shone,
the brighter the sleeping mountains shone.
And their farewell glow seemed to be tenderly caressing,
tenderly caressing my unclear gaze.
And, far below me, night had already come,
Night had already come for the sleeping Earth.
But for me the sun kept shining,
The fiery sun was setting far away.
I learned, how to catch the fleeting shadows,
The fleeting shadows of a day that dimmed,
And I rose higher and higher,
And the steps shook under my feet.
