Marina Tsvetaeva

"I Bless a Night I Sleep..."

I bless a night I sleep in my abode,
I bless a day when to my work I go,
Judgment and mercy of omniscient God,
The good law - and the stony law,

My dusty purple, patched in every piece...
My dusty staff, in the eternal glow!
And else, O God, I bless forever -- peace
And bread in stove of another home.


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