‘How hard to walk among the crowd’


There a man was burned alive.’


Afanasy Fet


How hard to walk among the crowd

with existence’s pretension,

and speak to posterity, aloud,

of the tragic play of passion.


And peering into darkest night,

find form in a chaos of feeling,

so that by art’s anaemic light

they may see life’s fatal gleaming!
