And yet …

  Oh, how desperately I want to live;
 Immortalize the real,
 Personify the faceless,
 Give flesh to the non-existent!
  
 Life’s crushing dream may smother me
 I may suffocate as I dream, -
 And yet a light-hearted youth, perhaps
 Will say of me in time to come:
  
 Let us forgive his gloom – could it be
 That it was really his secret drive?
 “He’s but a child of goodness and light
 He’s but freedom’s triumph!”
  
 (Aleksandr Bolk 05.02.1914)
