Alexander Pushkin | A magic moment I remember / Ricordo il magico istante..

Boris Valentinovich Shcherbakov (1916-1995) | Pushkin in Mikhailovsky, 1969 (detail)

A magic moment I remember:
I raised my eyes and you were there,
A fleeting vision, the quintessence
Of all that's beautiful and rare
I pray to mute despair and anguish,
To vain the pursuits world esteems,
Long did I hear your soothing accents,
Long did your features haunt my dreams.
