*And yet another translation (I never get tired of translating). This this time it's a poem by A. Pushkin.

I still remember that amazing moment
When you appeared before my sight
As though a brief and fleeting omen,
Pure phantom in enchanting light.

In the depressionís hopeless captive,
In haste of scrambling processions,
I missed your voice-- soft and attractive
I dreamt of your divine impressions.

Years passed. A storm, in gusts so active,
Dispersed my dreams and my possessions.
Iíve lost your voice-- soft and attractive,
Forgetting your divine impressions.

In gloom of darkness -- separation,
My days would slowly drag in strife.
Without belief and inspiration,
Without tears, and love and life.

My soul has reached its waking moment:
You re-appeared before my sight
As though a brief and fleeting omen,
Pure phantom in enchanting light.

And now, my heart, in fascination
Beats rapidly and finds alive:
Divine belief and inspiration,
And tears and love and even life.
