Don't Let the Song Die, My Poets!

The song has clung to my heart in the dark,

And is entreating me, warmed by hope:

- Don't let me perish, my poets!

I'll stay by your side through the terrors of war.

Don't let the song die, oh poets!..

So high a price to be paid for the spring…

All will resound in the song…

Through fire and smoke, the war stares in my face.

Still I walk on toward the sun! …

And the song will break through the gloom!..

And, piercing the dark veil of clouds,

Through the travails of the pitiless days,

The face of our Victory rises up,

Shining like the radiant face

Of my own beloved mother.
