THE SPRING OF LIGHT

http://s15.radikal.ru/i188/1104/bc/e175d065f1e7.jpg

(fragmentum)

… The little girl Rimma
Told the priest
That
The Archangel Gabriel,
Exactly him, no other Angel,
Came one to visit her
And
Like a little queen —
How touching were her words —
And she meant what she said —
Asked
To bring her an icon of Gabriel.
The icon happened to be
In the priest’s pocket,
He took it out and gave it
To Rimma.
«O yes, it’s him!» — smiled she, touching the cheap paper icon, —
«thank you so much!»
The priest wonders — how
Can she tell —
She is absolutely blind?
A vision of an Archangel…
How?
May be, it was a trick of Satan?
Here
Comes the thought
That
Like lightning
Has made
The first one
To ashes.
It is
The Spring of Light.
The Month of Nissan.

Чрезвычайно много внутренней рифмы, как в песнях. Отзыв в дневнике редактора - завтра.
