Leo Yankevich
Journey Late at Night: Poems and Translations
San Francisco: Counter-Currents Publishing Ltd., 2013

Promised Land

bentonindian2121 words

had circled her covered wagon,
leaving vestiges
of life that could have been:

dreams of a promised land,
a son and rag-doll daughter,
a scalped Scottish husband,
and not a drop of water.

Elegy for Hanns Breitenbach (1890–1945)

statue112 words

At the gates of heaven
he did not know the names
beyond the bombing bay.

But many miles away
he could still see the flames
judging the dead in Dresden.

Plotinus

Plotinus by Raphael

Editor’s Note:

From Leo Yankevich’s Journey Late at Night: Poems and Translations, forthcoming from Counter-Currents. 

For a moment as brief and long as eternity
he sees what the blind man sees in the blink of an eye:
a sun that never sets, forms wrought from gold, purity
before it falls or is restored to grace, the grey sky

The Dream

Mikhail_lermontov

Mikhail Lermontov, 1814–1841

184 words
