Marina Tsvetaeva

"As the Hand on Left With..."

As the hand on left with the hand on right
Our souls are beside.

We had both gone in a bliss of flight
As the wing on left and the wing on right.

But a whirl arrived -- and a chasm is left
From the wing on right to the wing on left!


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, April 1994,
Edited by Dmitry Karshtedt, July 1996.
