Romantic autumn sentiment: cherishing John Keats art

Hello there!
I’m Diana from English Section and I invite you to enjoy life with reading poems. This season we are reading John Keats amazing poems: “THE HUMAN SEASONS”, “FOR FANNY BRAWNE”. You should click, read original texts and make your poetic translation! I’m waiting for your variants on the Web-Journalist or you might send them on my email: poemswithdiana@gmail.com! Enjoy poetry! Enjoy autumn!
The Human Seasons
Four Seasons fill the measure of the year;
     There are four seasons in the mind of man:
He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clear
     Takes in all beauty with an easy span:
He has his Summer, when luxuriously
     Spring’s honied cud of youthful thought he loves
To ruminate, and by such dreaming high
     Is nearest unto heaven: quiet coves
His soul has in its Autumn, when his wings
     He furleth close; contented so to look
On mists in idleness—to let fair things
     Pass by unheeded as a threshold brook.
He has his Winter too of pale misfeature,
Or else he would forego his mortal nature.
For Fanny Brawne

The day is gone, and all its sweets are gone!
Sweet voice, sweet lips, soft hand, and softer breast,
Warm breath, light whisper, tender semitone,
Bright eyes, accomplished shape, and lang’rous waist!
Faded the flower and all its budded charms,
Faded the sight of beauty from my eyes,
Faded the shape of beauty from my arms,
Faded the voice, warmth, whiteness, paradise!
Vanished unseasonably at shut of eve,
When the dusk holiday—or holinight—
Of fragrant-curtained love begins to weave
The woof of darkness thick, for hid delight;
But, as I’ve read love’s missal through today,
He’ll let me sleep, seeing I fast and pray.

    Hi, Diana! Here’s my story.

    Сменяются периоды в году,
    В душе у человека та же смена.
    Весна приходит, вносит чистоту,
    И красоту, ступающую смело.
    А за весной — приходит лета час:
    Подслащенные медом размышленья,
    О молодости, о значеньи фраз
    И о мечтах, подвергнутых сомненью.
    Его душа есть осень. И крыло
    Он складывает, больше не нуждаясь
    В полетах. И в туман его влекло,
    В ту бледность, что теперь ему осталась.

    Его зима — граница для всего,
    Природы смерть, и, стало быть, его…

    Сезоны души

    Четырьмя сезонами полнится год,
    Четыре сезона в душе у людей.
    Первый — цветущая весна, когда узорчатое предвидение
    Берёт всё возвышенное в свой лёгкий размах.

    Второй — лето, когда юности воск пережёвывает себя,
    И мечтания так близки к недостижимому небу!
    А в душе — тихие бухты…

    Третий — осень, когда закрытые кулисы
    Скрывают надвигающуюся туманность
    И поджигают её.

    Четвёртый — зима, когда жизнь закрывается
    Частоколом небытия,

    И умирает природа души…

    It has been awesome! I think it’s so important to share poems with people. In my opinion all kinds of art are momentous. But as for me poetry helps us to understand ourselves and the world around. Thank you for your interest.

    It was a good experience in practicing poetic translation.

    Thank you Diana for the article! I tried to translate the poem myself!
    Сезоны чалавека
    Чатыры сезоны запаўняюць год
    І ў чалавека пачуццяў усяго чатыры
    У яго ёсць Вясна юрлівая, якая ахоплівае ўсё наваколле
    У яго ёсць Лета, якое з любімай жуйкай маладосці
    разважае, а потым спіць каля ціхай бухты
    У яго ёсць Восень, хавае крыллі яна, задаволена бачыць свет,
    А потым ідзе ў туман, у бледнасць, з якімі яна засталася сам-насам
    У яго ёсць Зіма, а дакладней ёсць слабасць.
    Не ўхіліцца ніхто ад кары Зімы.

    4 сезона в нашем году,
    4 сезона в сознании человека.
    Есть живая весна, когда она фантастически принимает всю красоту с легким порывом.
    Есть лето, когда можно смаковаться веселую жвачку молодости,
    До тех пор, пока душа не растворится и не станет частью себя.
    Есть осенние порты и гавани отдыха,
    Когда усталые крылья складываются и можно посмотреть на туман в безделье: позволить справедливым вещам быстро проходить мимо.
    У зимы тоже бледная неловкость, когда можно забыть свой смертный характер.
