Drunina


We kissed,
Cried,
And sang.
We rushed with bayonets.
And in the middle of the charge,
The girl in the rag-tag overcoat,
Fell, and clutched the snow.

Mama!
Mama!
I reached our objective!
Yet, along the banks of the Volga, on the steppe,
The girl in the rag-tag overcoat,
Fell, and clutched the snow.

-Iuliia Drunina (Translated by me)
