Last Birch Behind the Polar Circle
Engraving, Bequest of Sally Kent Gorton,
They disappear where the Kola Bay ends. They accompany us through the way to the ices, bend the Tundra wind.
Where the Finnish fisherman,
A nature’s sad stepson,
Tossed into the unknown waters,
Decrepit seine, which is there now…
Where the River Tuloma goes into the Veresova Bay, where the small lonely hut of the Finnish fisherman actually stood, where the birds are not afraid of men, the construction of the Tulomsky Hydro Station was started.
