The Movement May Change but Cannot Die


Adolf P. Shvedchikov – TRANSCEND Media Service

The movement may change but cannot die,
Eternal movement embraced by fleeting time,
Run, my free verse, and sparkle, rollicking rhyme,
My ardent soul, soar in a turquoise sky!
Inside of that movement there is a billowing life.
It appears constantly on our ancient earth,
Balancing endlessly among death and new birth
In cauldron of turmoil, wars, riots, and strife!
