ANNA AKHMATOVA: The Last Toast (3)

The Last Toast (3)

(From "The Break")

1934
I drink to home, that is lost,
To evil life of mine,
To loneness in which we’re both,
And to your future, fine, -- 

To lips by which I was betrayed, 
To eyes that deathly cold,
To that that the world is bad and that
We were not saved by God.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, November, 2000
