    poetry

    how would you translate this?
    thanks

    Зовёт нас дальний света шум,
    И каждый смотрит на дорогу
    С волненьем гордых, юных дум.
    Кому - нары, кому - Канары.

    Зовёт нас дальний света шум,
    Calls us distant light's noice
    И каждый смотрит на дорогу
    And everyone looks at the road
    С волненьем гордых, юных дум.
    With deep emotion of proud youthful thoughts.

    ok?

    Its a glitch in a poet's brain after smoking some stuff, i guess.

    wouldn't it usually be like: шум света?
    Кому - нары, кому - Канары.

    The distant noise of light is calling
    And everyone looks down the road
    with the excitement of proud and youthful thoughts.

    Я не думаю, что здесь оно употребляется в этом смысле.

    "Its a glitch in a poet's brain after smoking some stuff, i guess". Well you guessed wrong. I don't think Pushkin was a junkie.
    I also believe that "дальний света шум" here = "distant noise of the world". Wanja is right.

    "Все-таки Пушкин вспоминал время в Царскосельском Лицее и особенно своих друзей и товарищей всю свою жизнь. В своем прощальном стихотворении "Товарищам" Пушкин писал:

    "Промчались годы заточенья;
    Недолго, мирные друзья,
    Нам видеть кров уединенья
    И Царскосельские поля.
    Разлука ждет нас у порогу,
    Зовет нас дальний света шум,
    И каждый смотрит на дорогу
    С волненьем гордых, юных дум."

    Время, проведенное в дружеской лицейской среде, в атмосфере юношеских откровений и творческого соперничества, имело очень большое нравственное значение в становлении личности Пушкина."

    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.

    For those who don't like poetry: think of it that way - all songs started with poems. If you like music, you must like poetry
