Angel in the Sky

Written by: Aleh Barysau

An angel was elated
soared above the ground.
On a stifling populated
city he looked down.

Weightless in a blue sky
through a cloud he hustled.
On the southern side
knew well people’s bustle.

The image was dispersing
straight before my eyes.
By the air was urged on
reducing to a dust.

Presented in the bright Sun
like a fairy-witch,
affected like a clownish mug
a windy maverick.

Mischievous he seemed
to his seamstress nature.	
To the past farewell he bid
like a pliant snake.

Waving with the curl
to amazing flowers
and he soon was turned
into a range of mountains.
