Anna Akhmatova

Crucifix

Do not cry about me, Mother, seeing me in the grave.

I

This greatist hour was hallowed and thandered By angel's choirs; fire melted sky. He asked his Father:"Why am I abandoned...?" And told his Mother: "Mother, do not cry..."
II
Magdalena struggled, cried and moaned. Piter sank into the stone trance... Only there, where Mother stood alone, None has dared cast a single glance. © Copyright, 1996 Translated from Russian by Tanya Karshtedt, Edited by Dmitry Karshtedt, August 1996.
