World of Tomorrow by VINCENT DI FATE
This picture is divided into halves to show contrast between the past and the future. On the left, there is an industrial city with factories exuding clouds of smoke.  A man with a gas mask is leaving the city with a futuristic rifle in his hands. On the right, a green landscape with fields, mountains, and fresh air is depicted. A handsome blonde man dressed in a white shirt is standing by the tree with a sickle in his hand.
World of Tomorrow by VINCENT DI FATE
I would give my last breath to be with you -
We can't find solace in a wistful dream:
No pain is greater than a brief adieu!

Amidst the galaxy's celestial view,
By night and day, my earthly fears grow thin:
I would give my last breath to be with you.

The sorrowful farewell hits me anew:
Your trembling hands, eyes - desperate and grim -
No pain is greater than a brief adieu!

This ruthless anguish I cannot subdue:
Your spirit comes to me - sublime, yet dim.
I would give my last breath to be with you…

Alas, the woeful memories pierce through
My heart, immured by the eternal stream:
No pain is greater than a brief adieu!

Beloved, let the stars reveal my clue
About the cosmic places - vast, unseen:
I would give my last breath to be with you -
No pain is greater than a brief adieu!

  1. Wow! This is extraordinary fission of ecstatic delight! Your translation of the poem from Russian to English is breathtaking. So you are bilingual? I am too. I was born in Korea but now live in the States. You see I think we have a special eye to look into the things of the world! 🙂

    1. Yes, Russian is my first language! I’m still living in my home country, though looking forward to attending a Canadian university.

      When I’ve read your ”about” page, precisely the same thought came to my mind – so glad we’ve found each other!😉
