Rouge et noir

Soul, wilt thou toss again?
By just such a hazard
Hundreds have lost, indeed,
But tens have won an all.

 

Angels’ breathless ballot
Lingers to record thee;
Imps in eager caucus
Raffle for my soul.

 

*****

 

Duszo, czy znów będziesz ciskać?
Przez samo takie ryzyko
Setki naprawdę straciły,
Lecz dziesiątki miały wszystko.

 

Aniołów wotum bez tchnienia
Flegmatyczne cię notować;
Psoci wyborczy komitet
Dla mojej duszy tombolę.
