Our Friend by Nicholas Adamides
I have written a letter to our friend,
He depicts a new order for our dear Russia;
one that will drown her,
drown her in all thou hath ever tried to keep back.
He says the people have unleashed themselves;
whirling them into times of great horror.
Take his words as I did, my love;
he sees over the trees of the present;
and instead he finds the sky of the future.
Let him guide you through this war,
you must remember his speech is wisdom itself,
Would you deny wisdom if it offers itself,
grasp his hand as I did,
Stay safe, always remember the power of our friend.
