'The night, the pharmacy, the street...'

Alexander Blok


The night, the pharmacy, the street,

The pointless lamppost in the mist.

A quarter century recedes -

There's no escape. It all persists.



You'll die - and you'll begin anew,

As in the past, all will repeat:

The icy channel flowing through,

The lamp, the pharmacy, the street.
