A littleboat
Written by -   
, 31 2002

A poem by N.Panova, dedicated

to Natashenka Korableva,

who died during the terror act at Dubrovka:

I am a little boat, gentle and frail,

My sails are crystal.

My hands are on the tiller -

I am setting out on a lethalroute.

Excuse me! Iwill nothang

A white flag on the skinnymast!

Do not cry for me, Ibeg,

Let me go on my last journey!

Nord-Ost knocks me off my feet,

My fathers shore is hidden in the fog,

But Istand up to my full height

And as before, Ibelieve in Good!

I am a little boat, gentle and frail,

I did not search for peace!

My hands do not shake!

Remember me as such!

I fly on sails,

Leaving behind the unstable shore,

I am already in the heavens!

Only my smile remains with you!

Nord-Ost knocks me off my feet,

My fathers shore is hidden in the fog,

But Istand up to my full height

And as before, Ibelieve in Good!

The anchor has broken away, and the rigging tears,

The sails need mending,

While all around passions rage.

In this world Iam but a grain of sand.

A harsh wind beats against my breast,

It always tears where it is thin.

Life is so beautiful!

Live a long, long time!!!

Nord-Ost knocks me off my feet,

My fathers shore is hidden in the fog,

But Istand up to my full height

And as before, Ibelieve in Good!
