ALEXANDR BLOK: "I've to Return..."

"I've to Return..."

1900
I’ve to return to my great battle;
Revive my spirit, sleep my flesh!
Let’s change with days, in prayers settled,
All these days of the happy flash!

But let’s save, in our soul, gladness
Of those so happy days, 
Caresses of the black-eyed maiden
And the footlights’ enchanting blaze.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, October, 2002
