Парус 04:33
По мареву мёртвых вод Потрёпанный чёлн плывёт. Ты на корме, И по волне - Холодной стеной туман. Меч под рукой, Ночной покой - Не тишина, обман... Не помнишь, не хочешь уз, Не знаешь, не держишь курс, На сердце штиль, Нет сил грести И берег во мгле искать. Вспять не свернуть, И знает путь Лишь ветер, что тронул гладь. Плащ сорван с усталых плеч И сломан булатный меч, Но не сломать морскую гладь, Но неба свод не разбить. И не рассечь В худшей из сеч Незримую ветра нить. Под бортом - плеск тёмных волн. Во мгле заплутавший чёлн... И нет пути, Но ты свети, Звезда, путеводный свет. Ладья, плыви, Ветер, веди Мой парус в златой рассвет. -------------------------------------------------------------------- By the haze of dead waters A battered prow is floating. You're aft And across the wave - Fog is like a cold wall. The sword is at hand Night rest - Not silence, deceit... You don’t remember, don’t want any bonds, You don't know, don't keep the course There’s a calmness in your heart No strength to row And to look for the shore in darkness. You can’t turn back, And knows the way Only the wind that touched the surface. Cloak is torn from the tired shoulders And the damask sword is broken But one cannot shatter the sea But the sky cannot be destroyed. And one can't cut In the worst battle Invisible wind thread. Under the board is a splash of dark waves. The prow that got lost in the darkness... There is no way But shine, you, Star, (my) guiding light. Shallop, swim Wind, lead My sail into a golden dawn.
Вихрь лент и златых волос - Сенокос, пляс до утра. Хмель по кружкам золотой, Мёд хмельной - пира пора. Лишь бард старый у костра Песнь поёт - в ней стали звон. Тот, кто славен был вчера - По зиме пылью стал в вихре времён. Снег, кровь... Лед зимних звёзд - И вопрос, чья вина. Воронов багряный пир, Хрупкий мир смяла война. Лишь бард, кутаясь в плащ, Песнь поёт - в ней кубков звон. Всему, о чём вчерашний плач, По весне пылью стать в вихре времён. Взлёт-падение - в вихре времени... Вечен танец - смерть... рождение... Волны плещутся, камни точатся, Слёзы мира граня в сокровище... -------------------------------------------------------------------- A whirlwind of ribbons and golden hair - Haymaking, dancing until the morning. Golden hops is poured in mugs, Heady meads, it's time for the feast. Only the old bard by the fire Sings the song, it brings the ringing of steel. One who was glorious yesterday - In winter, became dust in a whirlwind of time. Snow, blood ... Ice of winter stars - And the question is who is at fault. Ravens’ crimson feast, The fragile peace was crushed by war. Only a bard wrapped in a cloak Sings a song, it brings the jingling of goblets. All that yesterday’s weeping’s about In spring, becomes dust in a whirlwind of time. Rise and fall - in a whirlwind of time ... Dance is eternal - death... birth... Waves are splashing, stones are whetted, Making tears of the world into treasure...

One year later, in August 1996, Alkonost was born. In over 20 years, the band has gone through many changes, but its unique sound and special atmosphere remained, being the band's distinctive features for all that time. ... more
