In a Dream
by Anna Akhmatova
The dark and solid separation I’m carrying equally with you.
Why are you crying? Come Give me your hand instead-- Promise again To come in dreams.
You and I Are like grief and the mountain-- We will not meet In this world. But sometimes Will you send across the stars A sign?

I drink to the house, already destroyed, And my whole life, too awful to tell, To the loneliness we together enjoyed, I drink to you as well, To the eyes with deadly cold imbued, To the lips that betrayed me with a lie, To the world for being cruel and rude, To God who didn't save us, or try.
the last toast (1934, anna akhmatova. tr. lyn coffin)
