Here, another poetry from Vladimir Paley that I found:


Dark somber vestments… soft gentle singing…
Glowing reflection of red vigil lights…
O God Almighty! Grant me endurance:
Heaven and hell battle deep in my heart…

Whisper of prayers… Sternness of faces…
Sonorous censers and pale blue smoke…
O God Almighty! Grant me Thy mercy:
Lightly as incense I rise unto Thee!

Out of the church yet again I shall forfeit
Those solemn promises given to Thee –
Fortify me in this combat eternal,
Purify, Holy, my sin-laden soul!

Give me resolve to speak bravely and boldly
When I am caught in life’s prickly embrace.
Dark somber vestments… Evening twilight…
Yellow wax candles’ sorrowing flame…
- Prince Vladimir Paley

I found this extract from the last and sadly poem of Vladimir Paley:

"His soul with tired wings
will fly up, murdered, to the Creator"

Is anybody knows the whole version or other poems?
Thank you :)

As I have read about Olga. She said that she "was born in Russian, she's remain Russian"
Maybe you have read too...

This is what I found on wikipedia and elsewhere from Vladimir Paley. Sorry I didn't find whole version of this poetries... It's just some extract

"A mes petites sœurs

Pendant des mois, des ans et des siècles entiers,
Tandis qu’au fond du ciel, Anges, vous sanglotiez,
La femme a pu se plaindre et l’homme a pu maudire –
Mais les petits enfants n’ont cessé de sourire!"

"C'était le bon temps de l'Empire !
Hélas, tout va de mal en pire
Où sont mes seize ans d'autrefois,
Que j'eus sous Napoléon Trois ?
La République m'a fait don
D'un rhumatisme et d'un bâton"

"Comment cicatriser la plaie
Comment oublier la tristesse,
Comment commencer un nouveau voyage,
Si vous n'êtes pas là ?"
(March 1918)

Hello everyone, this is one more from him in French too :)

Je murmure à la flamme
Les chagrins de mon âme
Tous mes petits secrets
L'heure sans violence
Fait monter du silence
Des murmures discrets...

Pourtant je suis heureuse
Quand douillette et frileuse
Je m'assoies près du feu
Mais je sens quelque chose
Dont je ne sais la cause
Et qui me trouble un peu

Malgré moi ma pensée
S'enfuie comme enlacée
Par un vague désir...
Vers un vague plaisir...
Je suis toute songeuse...
Si j'étais-amoureuse ?

I don't know the title but if you need any translation about a text, don't hesitate to ask me because I'm French... His poetry are really beautifull :)
See you ;)
