ALEXANDR BLOK: "And I Shall Watch..."

"And I Shall Watch..."

1900
And I shall watch how’s coming to its end
The universe, my country, native.
The lone one, I shall be jubilant
On its commemorations, festive.

Let my age be alone, but rejoiced,
Fallen in love with the destructive instance.
Yes, I’m the only Providence’s choice –
To witness death of the existence.  


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, October, 2002
