Deutsch and Yarmolinsky, comps.  Modern Russian Poetry.  1921.
 
In an Empty House
By Ivan Bunin (b. 1870)
 
FROM the walls the paper’s blue is vanished,
The daguerreotypes, the ikons banished.
Only there the deepened blue appears
Where these hid it, hanging through the years.
 
From the heart the memory is perished,        5
Perished all that long ago it cherished!
Those remain, of whom death hides the face,
Leaving their yet unforgotten trace.
