Anastasia Rhobolonskaya

Rookie [Anastasia Nikitevna Rhobolonskaya] (June 18th,1901 / Lomonosov, Russia)

The Lion's Weight

A lion lay sleeping on my heart
His bulk calling and kissing the ground
And for fear of what he might do
I resigned to make nary a sound

But the free dance of the gazelle called to my heart
Her pirouettes of ecstatic joy
Seemed a better fate to me
Than that great beast’s cruel ploy
