If I Can Stop One Heart From Breaking,

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

by Emily Dickinson

Here is my Russian translation of this poem: Валентин САВИН - Valentin Savin (мои переводы) My translation into Russian Эмили Дикинсон Когда б я людям помогла, Жила бы не напрасно. Когда бы чью-то жизнь спасла, Кто чувствовал ужасно, Иль подняла в гнездо птенца, То стало б ясно – Живу я не напрасно.
I like it! So touching, full of love and compassion.
