Night, Streets, The Lantern - Poem by Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Blok

Night, streets, the lantern, the drugstore,
The meaningless and dusky light.
A quarter of the century more -
All fall the same into your sight!

You died - as it was before -
You have the former way to start:
The streets, the lantern, the drugstore,
Swell of the canal in the night.
