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'.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
