Walk

Stop

Look down

Record

Repeat

But There Has To Be More

Now summer is gone

And might never have been.

In the sunshine it’s warm.

But there has to be more.

 

It all came to pass,

All fell into my hands

Like a five-petalled leaf,

But there has to be more.

 

Nothing evil was lost,

Nothing good was in vain,

All ablaze with clear light

But there has to be more.

 

Life gathered me up

Safe under its wing,

My luck always held,

But there has to be more.

 

Not a leaf was burnt up

Not a twig ever snapped…

Clean as glass is the day,

But there has to be more.

 

Arseniy Tarkovsky (translated by Kitty Hunter Blair)
