I wrung my hands under my dark veil. . .

"Why are you pale, what makes you reckless?"

-- Because I have made my loved one drunk

with an astringent sadness.



I'll never forget.  He went out, reeling;

his mouth was twisted, desolate. . .

I ran downstairs, not touching the banisters,

and followed him as far as the gate.



And shouted, choking: "I meant it all

in fun.  Don't leave me, or I'll die of pain."

He smiled at me -- oh so calmly, terribly --

and said: "Why don't you get out of the rain?"



Kiev, 1911



Translated by Stanley Kunitz (with Max Hayward)
