"Enlightenment"


He walked in awe
In awe of light
At nightfall, not at dawn
Whatever he saw
Receding from sight
In the sky's afterglow
Was what he wanted
To see, to know

Ilya Bernstein is the author of one collection of poems, Attention and Man, and the editor of Osip Mandelstam: New Translations (both published by Ugly Duckling Presse). He was born in Moscow, came to the United States as a child, and lives in New York City.

 

Some fall in love, while others fall in with love

And become its companions on a road

That has no destination.

What kind of company do they keep?

They keep the company of love 

In a fellowship of wayfarers. They follow love 

In sufferance of the consequences of love.

They tell themselves: "My heart 

Has done an unheard-of thing:

It has gone ahead and fallen in with love.

My heart has done an undreamt-of thing:

It has lost its way and fallen in with love."
