Larissa Miller

ادبيات روسيه / لاريسا ميلر / فارسی از ياشار احد صارمی

بپروازيم ، ها ؟
چرا ؟
كجا بپروازيم ؟
معلق ، سراغِ هيچ كجاي مشخص
همين طوري در پي آن ابر ..
و نه تُنديم به جايي برسيم
صداي سيم ها ...
باد خواهد سوتيد ... و بالها ، بالها
از آن بالا زميني كه ما در بندش هستيم ديده مي شود
چه سفيد چه ساكت چه برف آلود در زمستان !

Larissa Miller

Born in 1940, Larissa Miller was educated at the Foreign Languages Institute in Moscow and later taught at Moscow University. A major lyrical poet, she is the author of ten books, including Nameless Day; My Land and Home; Let's Talk about the Paradoxes of Love; Holidays, Holidays;and Between the Cloud and the Pit. Dim and Distant Days (English translation published by Glas) is her book of memoirs, looking back over nearly five decades of Soviet history to her hungry but happy childhood in postwar Moscow; her coming of age as a Jewish girl in an anti-Semitic regime; and her encounters with the KGB as an English interpreter in the 1960s and again in the 1980s as the wife of the famous human rights activist Boris Altshuler. The winner of several literary prizes, she was short-listed for the State Prize in 2000.
