жена философа  
A philosopher’s wife

A philosopher’s wife
Drives her roadster too fast
It’s her usual sport
Her mid-thirties are short,
And she knows she must
Make sense of her life
А philosopher’s wife

It was a dusty small flat
Where they lived for so long
Since the time they had met
On philosophy, yes,
It’s uneasy to thrive
And she learned to be strong
And she tried to spend less
A philosopher’s wife

No one ever hedged
All the risks she had run
Her ambitions and youth
Her continuous love
He just looked on a page
He looked for the truth
His concerns were above

All her choices were hard
They were sharp like a knife
But the call of her heart
Made her wise from the start
A philosopher’s wife

Oh my God, take a look
She is reading his book

For this social bliss
She’s been waiting for years
Now they are on the tide
Every jacket she wears
Would be Prada at least
And she’s buying her “Vogue”
And updating her blog
With some delicate pride

Every sky has a sun
So forget all the mess
It was an ultimate test
If your best years are gone,
We’ll make this year the best
So let’s go on a drive
A philosopher’s wife

Мне местами очень понравилось. И в целом хорошо.
