Without Love

Galaktion Tabidze
trans. by Nino Aduashvili & Noel Brockett

Without love
the sun does not reign over the arch of the sky,
the wind does not blow, the forest does not tremble
for joy . . .
Without love there does not exist
beauty,
neither immortality exists
without love.
But altogether different
is the final love,
as the flower of autumn
often bests the spring’s,
it does not call out for passions, stormy and aimless,
neither for youthful vigor nor wild voices
does it call . . .
And having been raised
in the crisp autumn valley,
it does not at all resemble the gentle flowers of the spring . . .
Instead of the gentle breeze,
it is caressed by the storm
and instead of desire,
it calls out for the embrace of the infinite.
