A. andreyev — to the poet — for the unwritten book
To the Poet — For the Unwritten Book
(From Juan Ramon Jimenez)
So, let us create the names.
They're a few – our life’s short days.
Even things have the shortened life.
Only names can eternity face.
Not our love – just a line of the love,
Not a flower – a name it above.
For the flower or love obtains
Endless life having one of names.
So, let us create the names!
