A.Blok, When, Entering The World... - Translation (Rus.)

to Evgeny Ivanov

When, entering the world enormous,
You vainly search the state of unity;
When you are looking in a dark corner
And waiting death out of it;

When you are spiteful, or got illness,
Are scorched by craving or by passion,
Believe: that time you have the freedom
To be proud of real happiness!

But when not boredom, nor love, neither
With a total fear you are breathing,
When all your dreams are spotted, covered
With blood, not young and not so quick, - then

You are completely robbed and naked:
Death is outside the languor power,
And your life, out of the perishing,
Thus - only the steps slows down.

March 1909
