You Are Great In Love - Poem by Yevgeny Yevtushenko
You are great in love.
You are bold.
My every step is timid.
I'll do nothing bad to you,
but can hardly do you any good.
It seems you are
off the beaten path through a forest.
Now we're up to our waist in wildflowers.
I don't even know
what flowers they are.
Past experience is of no help here.
I don't know
what to do or how.
You ask to be carried in my arms.
Already you're in my arms.
'Do you see
how blue the sky is?
Do you hear
what birds are in the forest?
Well, what are you waiting for?
Carry me then! '
And where shall I carry you? ...
