You can read my review of Ordeal here.
Tatyana's birth as human being
Took place in 1982,
In June, when weather was appealing
And sparkling with the morning dew.
As she grew up, too shy by nature,
Her friends were Pushkin, Dante, Wilde
Who wrote of love and of adventure -
She dreamt of the vampire kind.
As time went by, she took to versing
When she got hardly over ten,
And life was constantly coercing
Tatyana to employ her pen.
The Foreign Languages Department
She joined in 1999
Served as a very good incitement
For her verse writing to refine.
Then the first sketches were laid out,
When she was drawing to 18,
Ordeal began to come about
To lighten up her dull routine.
Now she's working as a teacher
Training her students' English skills
That her department has to feature
And help acquire in the drills.
What can I say about writing?
It is a motion of a soul.
It is so pure and exciting
To be in process all alone.
It’s been my way of relaxation
Forever since I can recall.
Writing brings thrill and fascination
In words intended to enthrall.
My world’s a realm of fairy-tales and dreams
With raging passions and heroic deeds,
At the disposal of too changing winds,
With nothing quite the way it truly is.
This kingdom has no boundaries of thought,
It’s guided by emotions and by mood
And art is worshiped there quite a lot
Because its value will remain for good.
