ANNA AKHMATOVA: "You, Who Is Cursed..."

"You, Who Is Cursed..."

(1963)
You, who is cursed, you, who is hailed,
Your voice is wild and simple.
And none can ever you translate
Into a tongue of people.
You’ll enter full Forgetfulness
Like people enter Shrine.
To that, you will be always blessed
By hand and heart of mine.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, July, 2002
