  Larissa Shmailo  NATIVITY (“NO MATTER . . . “ )   by Joseph Brodsky No matter what surrounded them and what the blizzard wailed at the sand, that their shepherd’s den was close, nor that they had no place else anywhere: First, they were together. Second (mainly), they were a threesome now, and, plainly, all created, anticipated, or gifted for them was now shared by three, at a minimum. Above, in the icy sky over their camp, with the habit of big towering over slight, glittered a star, which, from then on, had nowhere to hide from the baby ’s sight . The bonfire blazed till the log ’s last ember,  and everyone slept. The star, unlike others, greater than its glow, at its absolute nadir could know an alien as a beloved neighbor. Tr. Larissa Shmailo 12/14/18 Не важно, что было вокруг, и не важно,   о чем там пурга завывала протяжно,   что тесно им было в пастушьей квартире,   что места другого им не было в мире.    Larissa Shmailo  Во - первых, они были вместе. Второе,   и главное, было, что их было трое,   и всё, что творилось, варилось, дарилось   отныне, как минимум, на три делилось.   Морозное небо над ихним привалом   с привычкой большого склоняться над малым   сверкало звездою -- и некуда деться   ей было отныне от взгляда младенца.   Костер полыхал, но полено кончалось;   все спали. Звезда от других отличалась   сильней, чем свеченьем, казавшимся лишним,   способностью дальнего смешивать с ближним.  Joseph Brodsky, 1990
