ANNA AKHMATOVA: Four Seasons Of the Year

Four Seasons Of the Year

1959
I shall return today right there,
Where I had been at spring.
I’m neither sorry, nor unfair -
I only darkness bring.
It’s very deep, it’s like velvet,
It’s dearest to us
Like a dry leaf from a tree fled,
Like a wind’s whistle, that’s lone spread
Over the smooth of ice. 


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, August, 2002
