1 Poem by Valery V. Petrovskiy

The old record

As I wished
to forget your voice,
I started
my favorite

 I was trying
to recollect                          
 your image,
I opened a softback                          
with some poetry…

But one day
I had no bookmark
with your name
left in
and found the disc

Should I
start reading
the book afresh
not to lose you
for good…


Как только я хочу припомнить образ
Моей прежней любимой,
Я открываю давнюю книжку
На заложенной странице...

Когда я мечтал забыть твой голос,
Я ставил любимую пластинку...
Но однажды она разбилась,
А я вытянул закладку из потрепанной книжки.

Неужели, чтобы не потерять тебя совсем,
Я должен начать книгу сначала?
