To V.V. Bibikhin
He who loves the word, knows it,
he who loves sound, hears it:
as a ray of light winds and clamors in diamond,
a sudden flourish of the Irides.

And in the bright cloud of resounding,
he will find himself fully recompensed
by that vain dream of earthly kings and kingdoms –
beloved silence.
Larissa Volokhonsky and Emily Grosholz
