remembering Gennady Aygi

a poem in remembrance of Chuvash poet Gennady Aygi, one of the outstanding Russian language poets of the 20th century, friend of Pasternak, translator of literature into Chuvash, and editor of a Chuvash poetry anthology, who passed away recently - his poem:

Beginning from the field

all day - the wind's repetition
of itself
from the edge - of the nearby field

visibly - lightly - widely!-

but here - among peasant
its stumbling steps
even deeper - like a meeting
with "Someone" - of the soul!-

no clarity - no distinction
