What is the name of heart? May 17, 2008

“What is the name of heart?”-

I asked myself once

The answer I did not know

And went searching for it.

 

“What is the name of heart?”

I asked every man.

And no one could tell me that,

But I asked again and again.

 

“What is the name of heart?”

I asked the northen wind.

It blew into my face

But did not answer to me.

 

“What is the name of heart?”

I asked the whispering Sea.

It humbly washed over my feet

But gave no answer to me.

 

“What is the name of heart?”

I asked the beaming sun.

It smiled at me and said:

“Your Mother knows. Search for her. Run!”

…………………………………….

I found my Mother at last:

“What is the name of heart?”

She took my heart in Her palms

And answered as simple as that:

“The Spirit”.

I came here with my perents when i was still a little boy, so i dont remember much of russia. but this poem you wrote is very beautiful, and it remainds me of a russian song that was at the end of a russian film: calld “ironia sudby”. maybe you know the name of the artists or the name of the song, i would very much like to hear it. thenks 🙂
