That would be great Ilya! I have never done recording and sending sound files either but I think mp3 should work.

Dear Martha, I can probably record the sound and send it to you. I've never done that before. It is necessary to define the format (mp3 ?).

I agree with you Bradford. And i would love to hear it in Russian which is a sweet sounding language, as I remember, even not understanding it at all.

Comment by Bradford on Tuesday

Even with an accurate translation, such poetry makes me want to learn the original language in which it was written.

Comment by Ilya Semenenko-Basin on Tuesday

Dear Martha, I am very grateful for Your publication. :-) Your words have served as support for me in the period that I am going through now. Unfortunately, the various poetry of the world have difficulty communicating with each other; there is always a language barrier... The translation of Dimov is very accurate, almost literal.
