I am always amazed at those who can speak multiple languages which I cannot. Even more amazed when someone can speak, write, joke and translate other languages.
Below is a poem originally written in Russian by Oleg Bogachev and translated poetically to English by Elena Arnott. And of course I learned something new....What is a Pict?
Once upon a time there lived Picts,
Did they really exist? If so, where are you now, Picts?
Have you turned into the rocks or maybe hiding in the clouds?
Picts, be loud, please come out!
Are you whispering to us being carried by the creeks?
Are you sharing your dreams through the sound of the leaves?
Scottish whisky, taste of heaven, sipping slowly and imagine
Streets of London, feel of freedom
Picts, come out! Are you real?
Weird feeling, Picts are here
Living, eating, drinking beer….
