A Poem by Margarita Aliger: Yes And No

Margarita Aliger-5

 

Yes And No

 

If right now, I were
only eighteen years old,
I would most prefer
to sent back the “no”-word!

If, right now, I were
of my twenty two years,
I would most prefer
To reply just by “yes”!

But for years of our lots,
For all difficult years,
Not enough of small words,
As are “no” or “yes”

They have not enough mightiness
to retell you my soul:
So, if I’m in silence,
stop ask questions at all.
