«You enjoy listening to the wind…»

Наталья ХВОСТИКОВА | Поэзия


You enjoy listening to the wind…
I love to watch the burning flame.
It’s sparks rising into the starry sky…
Drowned by the wind in night’s shade.

Of all that breathed and warmed,
Of all that used to be whole,
Of all that teasingly blazed,
Only slight ashes are left.

You no longer savor the wind.
I’ve learned to avoid the flame.


At sunrise, like a tear all a-glisten,
«Don’t forget this… «, a dewdrop had whispered.
«Don’t forget this… And I’ll be by your side,
As a spark on your palm, still alive».
