Aura of Grandmama Vera

Vera Cwirko-Godycki 1915

Aura of Grandmama Vera

A maiden’s modest eyes

Looking out of the photograph,

Glitter with hope and love,

Dreaming of grand balls,

Dancing with handsome officers,

Thinking of their hands

On her waist

As they dance

A Mazurka.

She imagines eyes meeting

And love at first sight.


She is only fifteen.

Faith encircles

Her innocent heart.

She is in St Petersburg,



Of gathering forces.
