Lyudmila Purgina (Russian Federation)
M.Tsvetaeva, There on market... - translation (rus.)
There on market the people yelled,
Steam was flying out of bakery.
I've noticed the scarlet lips
On the street singer's face quite narrow.
In the dark - with flowers - scarf,
- To obtain the higher god's blessing -
She was standing in a pilgrim's crowd
At the Sergy-Troitzky temple.
Pray for me, the beautiful girl,
Sad and devilish at the same time,
When the woods will uplift you on top
As the Khlyst Virgin's icon at once.
