Don't think about seconds from your height-
The time will come, and you'll accept that certainly:
They whistle as the bullets nearby...
The moments are pressed into the years.
The moments are pressed into the centuries.
And I am unaware of the real:
Was it the first or was it the second blink.
And every blink has th' reasonable base.
The bells-which toll.
The signs-being drawn, etcetera...
And moments will then to u present:
The glory or the shame - or immortality!
From tiny moments - the rain consists.
The usual water downfalls from heaven...
And you are waiting half of life, at least,
When moment will come, only your's ever...
And it will come -
As one and a great drink
Of water in the heat of summer day sometimes...
In common, you must know your appeal
From first and to the last day of your real life...
I have seen the translation with word The instants
