Marina Tsvetaeva

"If Your Soul Was Born..."

If your soul was born with wings
What does a hut mean or a palace of kings!
What -- Genghis Khan, and what -- a horde!
I have two foes in the whole world,
They are two twins in one image united:
Hunger of hungry and glut of glutted.


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