Russian Literature
Boris Pasternak
Doctor Zhivago
Anna Akhmatova
White Flock
• My voice is weak, but will does not get
weaker. It has become still better without
love, The sky is tall, the mountain wind is
blowing My thoughts are sinless to true God
above. The sleeplessness has gone to other
places, I do not on grey ashes count my
sorrow, And the skewed arrow of the clock
face Does not look to me like a deadly arrow.
How past over the heart is losing power!
Freedom is near. I will forgive all yet,
Watching, as ray of sun runs up and down The
springtime vine that with spring rain is wet.
