Emma Adamyan Poems
* * *
If life disappoints your hopes,
Be niether sad, nor mad,
In days of dejection prove obedience:
Believe a better day is not in the distance.
The future comforts one`s heart,
The present is cheerless:
All is instantly, everything is to be gone,
And only when it`s gone it will become sweet!
Translated from Russian. The poet Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin 'Yesli Jizn Tebya Obmanet'
A Special Gift
Since you`ve been loving me
I was given a special gift,
It still sounds so unusual...
Was it your favour to me
Or maybe the Lord decided I should hold it...
For it showed where I was wrong and right,
It revealed your secrets, so I could treat you right,
It warmed me in days of cold,
Decorated like only could gold,
