Among The Worlds - Poem by Innokenty Fedorovich Annensky

Among worlds shone, amid glimmers,
A single star whose name I repeat....
Not so that I may come to love it,
But because I am weary of the rest.

And if I find doubt a burden,
I seek only from her an answer,
Not because she shines brightly
But because with her I need no light.

    ...because with her I need no light...

    Sufficient reason.
