Love Yourself


I love you; though it makes me beat,
Though vain it seems, and melancholy -
Yet to this shameless, hapless folly
I'll be confessing at your feet.

It ill becomes me: that I'm older,
Time I should be more sensible...
And yet the frivolous disorder
Fills every jitter of my soul.

Say you'll be gone; I'm jaded, yawning;
You're back; I'm sad, I suffer through -
Yet how can I be clear, from owning,
My angel, all my care for you!

When off the stairs your weightless footfall,
Your dress's rustle, reaches me,
Your voice, as maidenly, as youthful -
I lose my senses instantly.

You smile at me; I'm glad, immensely;
Ignore me; and I'm sad, again;
Your pallid hand will recompense me
For the whole day of utter pain.

When you're embroidering, or setting
Your eye on something fair, or letting
Your hair amuse you; I'm beguiled;
In silence, reddening, all forgetting
I watch you like a spellbound child.

But then how wretched my existence,
How desolate my jealous pain,
When you set out into the distance
To wander in the cold and rain;

And then your solitary grievings,
Or, in the corner, twosome talks,
Or twosome piano in the evenings,
Or twosome trips, or twosome walks...

Alina! just a little mercy -
I dare not even mention love:
For sins I have been guilty of,
My angel, of your care unworthy...
But feign it! All can be achieved
By that absorbing gaze, believe me...
Oh, it takes little to deceive me -
I cannot wait to be deceived!

Alexander Pushkin quotes

A Magic Moment I Remember

I raised my eyes and you were there.
A fleeting vision, the quintessence
Of all that's beautiful and rare...




Alexander Pushkin quotes

Thou and You

"Oh, how sweet you are!" I say ‒
"How I love thee!" says my soul...
