|Innokenty Annensky (1855 - 1909)|
Through macrocosm and scintillating orbs
I say the name of One Celestial Lover…
Not that I have been loving Her before,
But that I have been wearied by the others.
And if the doubt exacts a heavy toll,
She is the One I’m begging for true guidance,
Not that She brings more light into the world,
But that with Her one'd be content in darkness.
