Edna St. Vincent Millay (Эдна Сент-Винсент Миллей)


Recuerdo


WE were very tired, we were very merry­
We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.
It was bare and bright, and smelled like a stable­
But we looked into a fire, we leaned across a table,
We lay on a hill-top underneath the moon;
And the whistles kept blowing, and the dawn came soon. 

We were very tired, we were very merry­ 
We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry; 
And you ate an apple, and I ate a pear, 
From a dozen of each we had bought somewhere; 
And the sky went wan, and the wind came cold, 
And the sun rose dripping, a bucketful of gold. 

We were very tired, we were very merry,
We had gone back and forth all night on the ferry.
We hailed, ”Good morrow, mother!” to a shawl-covered head, 
And bought a morning paper, which neither of us read;
And she wept, ”God bless you!” for the apples and pears,
And we gave her all our money but our subway fares.
