    Trophy Points:
    I take no joy in pleasures preconceived
    And nature is a graying dot today
    And only in light drunkenness I may
    From the unwealthy life color receive.
    The wind is playing with a cloud immersed
    An anchor falls to bottom of the sea
    And breathless like a canvas under me
    Soul overhangs abysses of the cursed.

    But I adore casino on the sea
    The foggy window swinging avidly
    On rippling cloth a ray of sun shines through
    Surrounded by water green and blue
    When like a rose a glass of wine is full
    I see the flapping wings of a seagull!

    By Osip Mandelshtam
