I loved you...
Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin
Translated by Genia
I loved you, and I probably still do,
And for a while the feeling may remain...
But let my love no longer trouble you,
I do not wish to cause you any pain.
I loved you; and the hopelessness I knew,
The jealousy, the shyness – though in vain –
Made up a love so tender and so true
As may God grant you to be loved again.
To a Friend
Dorothy Parker American (1893-1967)
Her mind lives in a quiet room,
A narrow room, and tall,
With pretty lamps to quench the gloom
And mottoes on the
There all the things are waxen neat
And set in decorous lines;
And there are posies, round and sweet,
And little, straightened
From cold and noise and pain,
And bolts the door against her heart,
Out wailing in the rain.
