A Word Rushes like Silver Bullet


Adolf P. Shvedchikov – TRANSCEND Media Service

A word rushes like silver bullet,
Piercing the hearts of people,
Who we are: grain, chaff,
Answer me quickly!
Will our day be dim, not a trace of it remains,
Will everything in the world be empty,
Covered with shell of ice?
Will all our hopes in vain?
Again the ignoramuses will reign,
If the living word dies!
