Mikhail Yeryomin Five Poems, Trans. J. Kates
Translated from the Russian by J. Kates

Whether Ares once incited his sister Eris to battle or
With the connivance of their father she pulled her brother into discord; 
Whether Madame la Mort was bidden by Herr Tod
For a bite to eat, or he invited her as a neighbour
Searching, please wait... animated waiting image
