A summer miracle in winter?

Close to Tower Bridge, London, December 2020

This small piece of street art caught my eye as I wandered along the north bank of the Thames a week or two ago. It was only when I started to edit the photo that I realised it has a message entwined in the flowers – a poetic message in Russian.

It’s an extract from a poem by Robert Rozhdestvensky:

-Здравствуй! Кого я вижу!
Больно глазам!

-Hi! Whom do I see!
It hurts your eyes!

Just like in a fairy tale:
suddenly, in the middle of winter – a summer miracle!
So don’t believe in miracles …
