Zinaida Gippius - Electricity




Two threads are twined together
Exposed are their hearts.
Those “Yes” and “No” aren’t blended,
Entwined remain apart.
Their dusky intersection
Is lifeless and confined,
There will be resurrection,
And they await that time.
The ends will meet caressing,   
Those “Yes” and “No” unite,   
And “Yes” and “No” are pressing,
While waking and embracing,
In death they’ll turn to Light.

1901
