"Rain Flogs My Face..."
Rain flogs my face and collar-bones,
a thunderstorm roars over musts.
You thrust upon my flesh and soul,
like tempests upon ships do thrust.

I do not want, at all, to know,
what will befall to me the next –
would I be smashed against my woe,
or thrown into happiness.

In awe and gaiety elated,
like a ship, that’s going tempests through,
I am not sorry that I’ve met you,
and not afraid to love you, too.

Semyon Grigorevich Frug (Szymon Frug) Semyon Grigorevich Frug was born in 1860 into a family of Jewish farmes who lived in one of the Jewish farming colonies in southern Ukraine.From 1912 unitl his death in 1916 ,Frug lived in Odessa,where the sixth edition of his three-volume "Complete Works"was published in 1913.His talent as a writer,narrator and reader reached their full expression Odessa ,which was a center of Jewish literary activity.His contemporaries recalled the artistry with which he would read his work ,or rather declaim them by hearth,at literary evenings.Frug's works were mainly written in Russian with only a few stories written in Yiddish ,itself a reflection of the environment in which members of the Jewish intelligentsia moved at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries .In both his poems and prose he described with bitter humor and ruthless realism the life of the Jewish colonists ,their relationships with their Ukrainian and Russian neighbors ,the disagreements and occasional full-blown heated arguments about the relative merits or lack thereof of various Yiddish dialects spoken by Jewish from Lithuania and Belorussia in contrast to those who had settled in the villages of Ukraine a long time before.Frug himself said in one of his poems,encapsulating his work maybe better than others ,that the essence of his poetry is that"What I took from people with tears and grief,I give back with poetry ".One of the unique features of Frug's poetry is the number of them that were set to music and performed on stage. http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Szymon_Frug http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view_page.jsp?artid=432&letter=F&pid=0
