Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 13, Op. 113, Adagio "Babi Yar", text by Yevgeny Yevtushenko.
Leaves - we cannot have,
Sky - we cannot have,
But there is so much we can have -
To embrace tenderly in a darkened room.
"Don't be afraid, those are the booming sounds
Of Spring itself. It's coming here.
Come to me,
Quickly, give me your lips!"
"They're breaking the door!"
"No, it's the ice breaking..."
