ANNA AKHMATOVA: II

II

(From the "Death")
1942
And now, I am ready to make step in
The world, all gain but paying different rent…
For me, this ship too has the privet cabin,
The wind in sails, the heaviest under heaven
Moment to say ‘Farewell’ to Motherland.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, July, 2002
