A Girl Sang a Song poem – Aleksandr Blok poems | Poetry Monster

A poem by Alexander Block – Alexandre Block – Alexandr Blok – Александр Блок
(1880-1921)

A girl sang a song in the temple’s chorus,

About men, tired in alien lands,

About the ships that left native shores,

And all who forgot their joy to the end.

Thus sang her clean voice, and flew up to the highness,

And sunbeams shined on her shoulder’s white —

And everyone saw and heard from the darkness

The white and airy gown, singing in the light.

And all of them were sure, that joy would burst out:

The ships have arrived at their beach,

The people, in the land of the aliens tired,

Regaining their bearing, are happy and reach.

And sweet was her voice and the sun’s beams around….

And only, by Caesar’s Gates — high on the vault,

The baby, versed into mysteries, mourned,

Because none of them will be ever returned.
