MI Tsvetaeva is a poet of exceptionally vivid talent, even for the fruitful poetic era of the “silver age”. Raised in the family of the famous art professor IV Tsvetaeva, the girl received not only a very good education, but from an early age she discovered in herself an irresistible craving for creativity.

A small poem “If the soul was born winged.” It contains only six lines, but it expresses the whole mentality of Tsvetaeva’s lyrical heroine.

The poem was written in 1918 for Russia this time of global historical upheavals: behind the shoulders of three revolutions, a bloody civil war.

Tsvetaeva laconically, but at the same time

voluminously conveys the social opposition of that time:

Two twins – inextricably-fused:

Famine hungry – and satiety full!

Feeling the inner intransigence of these two images, at the same time Tsvetaeva sees their similarities, even calls them twins, for the armed protest of both is equally terrible and ruthless, cruel and wild for a subtle poetic worldview.

At the dawn – the slowest blood,

At the dawn – the most naive silence.

The spirit from the flesh of the stagnant takes divorce,

A bird cage bone gives a divorce

In Bedlam, nonhumans

With the wolves of the squares, –
