Sleeplessness and Lullaby of Words



 Cats are mewing somewhere.
 Sounds of steps I hear from far away.
 Your words are perfect lullaby for me.
 Because of them I do not sleep for three months.

 You are again, you are again with me sleeplessness.
 I notice your immovable image.
 What do you think the beautiful lawless one.
 Do I sing badly for you?

 The windows are hidden behind white curtains.
 Half darkness is bluish streaming.
 Are we have joy from the distant News?
 Why is easy for me to feel you?

 Anna Akhmatova
