M. L. MIKHAILOV

NIGHT AND MORNING

We shall be buried on an eve stifling and close,
'neath cloudy skies;
Lightnings will play, the river roar, the forest
utter moans and sighs.

The night will be a night of storm; mighty in
their stupendous power,
Rain, fire and thunder will burst forth from
those dread clouds that darkly lower.

But o'er our graves, foretelling that a bright
day shall be given,
The dawn will set a rainbow fair, spanning
the whole wide heaven.
