A.Blok, To Anna Akhmatova - Translation (Rus.)


To Anna Akhmatova
By Alexander Blok

'And the beauty is terrible' - You'd be told to, -
Then You'll put on lazily
On your shoulders the spain shawl,
And a scarlet rose - in hair.

'And the beauty is simple' -
You'd be told to, -
With a motley shawl You'll lubberly
Cover a child,
And a rose - on the floor.

But, absentmindedly harking
To all words, heard around,
You'll sink to a reverie,
And rehearsing inside You:

'I'm not awful, nor simple;
I'm not terrible to kill down
Easily; I'm not so simple
To learn, that the life is frightening'.

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
