* Dolphin is the symbol of Batumi, Georgia. The dolphin represents one of the main beauties of the Adjarian part of the Black Sea littoral. They often catch the sight of holiday-makers on the beach with their playing and jumping on the ripply surface of the sea. The (new) Batumi dolphinarium was reopened (2010?) at the initiative of the local government after 20 years of non-functioning.

"The Little Humpbacked Horse (Konyok-Gorbunok)" - 4.

Lo, the humpback stood beside him,
Saying: "Good-now quickly hide him

In your sack, and hold on tight,
For we haven't got all night."
But Ivan the Fool said: "Oh,
Let me scare them ere we go.
Look-they've had so much to eat
That they can't stand on their feet!"
Said Ivan, and then and there
With his sack he beat the air.

"Ай, хозяин, отличился! —
Говорит ему конёк. —
Ну, скорей её в мешок!
Да завязывай тужее;
А мешок привесь на шею,
Надо нам в обратный путь". —
"Нет, дай птиц-то мне пугнуть! —
Говорит Иван. – Смотри-ка,
Вишь, надселися от крика!"
И, схвативши свой мешок,
Хлещет вдоль и поперёк.


When they reached the glade, they flew
Straight towards the ocean blue;

There, across it, lay the whale-
Monster head and monster tail;
He was all one mass of holes,
From his ribs grew stakes and poles;
On his tail-a forest black;
And a village on his back;
Peasants on his lip drove ploughs,
Children danced between his brows;
Oak-trees on his huge jaws grew,
Maidens there sought mushrooms, too.

Вот въезжает на поляну
Прямо к морю-окияну;
Поперёк его лежит
Чудо-юдо Рыба-кит.
Все бока его изрыты.
Частоколы в рёбра вбиты,
На хвосте сыр-бор шумит,
На спине село стоит;
Мужички на губе пашут,
Между глаз мальчишки пляшут,
А в дуброве, меж усов,
Ищут девушки грибов.

"The Little Humpbacked Horse (Konyok-Gorbunok)" - 3.

"That's not all," the chamberlain
Whispered, as he bowed again.
"Were it but the feather, he
Might retain it, Majesty-
But, he boasts, as I have heard,
That, did you but say the word,
He could bring the Bird of Fire
To your Royal Chamber, Sire."
And the spy, with servile tread,
On all fours approached the bed,
Dropped the treasure-and once more
Banged his head upon the floor.

«Да и то ль ещё он знает! —
Спальник тихо продолжает,
Изогнувшися. – Добро!
Пусть имел бы он перо;
Да и самую Жар-птицу
Во твою, отец, светлицу,
Коль приказ изволишь дать,
Похваляется достать».
И доносчик с этим словом,
Скрючась обручем таловым,
Ко кровати подошёл,
Подал клад – и снова в пол.

"The Little Humpbacked Horse (Konyok-Gorbunok)" - 2.

"Who's the master?" Here, Ivan,
Arms akimbo, like a Pan
Pushed his brothers both aside,
Puffed his cheeks and proudly cried:
"Tsar, these steeds belong to me,
I'm their owner, too, you see."

"Кто хозяин?" Тут Иван,
Руки в боки, словно пан,
Из-за братьев выступает
И, надувшись, отвечает:
"Эта пара, царь, моя,
И хозяин – тоже я.".


Unsuspectingly, the sprite
In a corn-bin placed the light,

After which, with tender care,
He commenced to groom the pair;
Braided their fine manes so long,
While he sang a merry song.

Он кладёт перо в сусек,
Чистить коней начинает,
Умывает, убирает,
Гривы длинные плетёт,
Разны песенки поёт.
