Aleksandr Blok

ALEXANDR BLOK: "Night, Streets, the Lantern..."

"Night, Streets, the Lantern..."

Night, streets, the lantern, the drugstore,
The meaningless and dusky light.
A quarter of the century more --
All fall the same into your sight! 

You died – as it was before – 
You have the former way to start:
The streets, the lantern, the drugstore,
Swell of the canal in the night. 


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, January, 1995 - March, 2002
