The golden skies, the translucent twilight, the white nights, all hold the promise of youth, of love, of eternal renewal. The war has not yet touched this city of fallen grandeur, or the lives of two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha Metanova, who share a single room in a cramped apartment with their brother and parents.
And before it, All ran away from its strait path, And all got emptied there; at once. The waters flew into the cellars, And raised up to the fence of canals — And, like Triton, Petropol sails Sunk in the water till his waist.
Siege and assault! The evil waters Thrust into windows, like slaughters. The mad boats row into a glass. The stalls are under the wet mass. All is destroyed: bread and abode. And how to live?
The streets turned into the fast rivers, Running to made lakes, dark and grievous, The Palace was an island, sad, That loomed over the blackened waters.
The Tsar decreed — from end to end, Down the shortest streets and longest, On danger routs over the waves, His generals set into the sailing — To save the drawing and straining On streets and in their homes-graves.
On one of them, as for a race, Without his hat, arms — tightly pressed, Awfully pale — no stir appeared — Evgeny sat. And there he feared Not his own death. His looks of deepest desperation Were all set on a single place Without a move. The waves, impatient, Had risen there, like tallest crags, Lifted from waked deeps in a madness, There wreckage swam, there wailed a tempest … O, God!
O, God! Him around Only black waters could be found! A reprobate, With his sever and low set, Thus, thrusting in a village, helpless, Breaks, slaughters, robs all and oppresses: The roar, rape, swore, alert and wails! And, under their large booty posted, Afraid of chases and exhausted, The robbers speed to their old place, Losing their loot along the road.
The waves were gone, the pavement, broad, Was opened, and Evgeny, stressed, With heart half-dead and stifled throat, In a hope, fear and awful pains, Runs to the stream, just now restrained.
And for a long with these waves, close, The much trained rower was in fight, And to sink deeply mid their rows, The scuff, with its brave sailors both, Was apt all time… The other side Is reached, at last. And the frustrated Runs through the so well-known street To his old places.
He stopped, frustrated, Went back, returned a little later… He looks… he walks … he looks once more. There is the place their house for And willow-tree. And full of troubles, hard to wear, He walked and walked around the place. The night embraced the city, stuffed With all its woe. And still for hours A sleep was running from each house — The folk recalling the past day.
The dawn, witty, Had safely screened the doing, base.
The former life had got its place. Along the streets now free of flooding, With cold indifference, folks are moving. Just having left his lodge of night, The clerk is going at his site. From the yard Is pulled the boat, full of mud. Mute and half-blind, With awful thoughts, he was a-roaming, Being quite tortured by some dream.
The wind, bad, Was breathing there.
The poor waked up. All was gloom round: Falling the rain, wind wailing loud, And it was answered through the night By some alone distant guard Embed Size px. Start on.
