OLGA BERGGOLTZ: "Not Till the Silver.."

"Not Till the Silver.."

1949
Not till the silver nor the golden wed
I will proceed to live with you, my friend.
But we have had the iron one before –
It’d gone through flames of the ferocious war.
This love I hold all golden weds above:
Like in the iron, I am still in love.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, March, 2002
