I Wait For You...

Rating: 3.5

I wait for you. The years in silence pass
And as the image, one, I wait for you again.

The distance is in flame -- and clear one as glass,
I, silent, wait -- with sadness, love and pain.

The distance is in flame, and you are coming fast,
But I'm afraid that you will change your image yet,

And will initiate the challenging mistrust

By changing features, used, at long awaited end.

Its hard to appreciate a poem whose language is removed from its mother tongue, but it still leaves an impact on the reader. The absence of love is still felt.

The distance is such bright! And azure is so fine! But I'm afraid that you will change your image yet.......nice expression. A beautiful poem by Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Blok is well executed.

I adore Russian poets. They write with great expression, from the depths of their souls! A lovely poem chosen as Poem of the Day. I wonder, did Aleks write this one for/about his wife?

The translation is quite bad - " The distance is such bright! " and " Azure is so fine! " and many others.
