The dim glow of desire

I love your eyes, my friend

with their play so bright and wondrous

when you suddenly raise them

and like lightning in the wilderness

embrace, at once, the whole land…

but there’s a charm greater still

when your eyes, my love, are lowered

and the moment ignited by passion’s fire

then, through your downcast lashes

I see the dim glow of desire

  3. Thank you Debbie and Prommila. I did not translate this, I heard it in the film ‘Stalker’. Nonetheless, it is translated from the Russian by someone.
