Deutsch and Yarmolinsky, comps.  Modern Russian Poetry.  1921.
 
Confession
By Anna Akhmatova
 
FROM my poor sins I am set free.
In lilac dusk the taper smolders;
The dark stole’s rigid drapery
Conceals a massive head and shoulders.
 
“Talitha kumi”: Is it He        5
Once more? How fast the heart is beating…
A touch: a hand moves absently
The customary cross repeating.
