Traduction s'il te plait? I'll go as far as I can bez slovar' --

One European, perhaps a member of Komsomol
Decided to paint every day life in the old regime.

After that I only understand the sound of the bells bells bells and
someone in a hurry.

Carolyn's attempt to shave using a waistcoat reminds me of
Mandelshtam's verses:

Один еврей, должно быть, комсомолец,
Живописать решил дворянский старый
быт:
На закладной под звуки колоколец
Помещик в подорожную спешит.
