Crucifix Poem by Anna Akhmatova


Rating: 3.0

Do not cry for me, Mother, seeing me in the grave.

This greatest hour was hallowed and thandered
By angel's choirs; fire melted sky.
He asked his Father:"Why am I abandoned...?"
And told his Mother: "Mother, do not cry..."

Magdalena struggled, cried and moaned.
Peter sank into the stone trance...
Only there, where Mother stood alone,
None has dared cast a single glance.

This brought so many emotions. Death of a child....hardest blow to and concern of a child so well expressed.

Beautiful imagery, so haunting and enchanting, so much in so few words. Very poignant
