ANNA AKHMATOVA: "From the Strange Verse..."

"From the Strange Verse..."

1944
From the strange verse where’s secret every word,
Where on the right and left a gulf’s the same, 
Where under feet, like dry leaf, lays a fame – 
There’s no for me salvation in the world.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, July, 2002
