Prelude (Blue, Gray , Black), Translated to English by M. Alexandrian
You laughed at me
And you didn't know
With what trepidation 
I stole the apple
From the neighbor's garden.

The gardener ran after me,
He saw the apple in your hand
And looked at me angrily.

The half eaten apple dropped from your hand on the ground
And you left and still
For many years in my ear 
The clatter of your repeated footsteps
Is bothering me,
And I am thinking,
Lost in meditation,
- Our small house
Didn't possess apple.
