Thank you, Alexey. This poem in English and Russian is on an old
Spoken Arts LP I still have somewhere. One one side of the record VN
reads a chapter from Lolita and on the other a selection of poems. The
recording on the web sounds exactly like the reading the way I
remember it. So Lastochka is "swallow" and/or "swift"? Are they the
same bird? No ornithologist, I.
