INNOKENTY ANNENSKY: Among the Worlds

Among the Worlds

1901
Among the worlds, in glimmering of stars,
The single Star is ever my attraction…
Not ‘cause I’d so loved Her so far,
But ‘cause I live with others with aversion.

And if my doubts were an awful plight, 
I just from Her wait for the final answers,
Not ‘cause She sends to me the saving light,
But ‘cause with Her I can live and in darkness. 


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, February, 2001
