Here you will find the Poem Herenowour age of socialism!... of poet Boris Pasternak
Here?now?our age of socialism! Here in the thick of life below. Today in the name of things to be Into the future forth we go. Like Georgia shining in her beauty, Like a land of light by open seas, It beckons-veiled within a mist Of wild surmise and theories. There mothers of Putivl no more Lament like cuckoos their dismay; There joy no longer looks askance In fear, but walks abroad by day. There life and happiness converse Together, free from hate and strife, All joined to give their saving strength And stay to every child and wife. There men no longer by exchange Compute the things they have or owe, But gladly spend themselves in giving- The all they have, the all they know. Then let my message overtake This wondrous age in history: O may my children in their gladness Out of the future answer me!
