Elizaveta Sudina is a contemporary Russian poetess who writes in her native Russian as well as in English. Born on 29th September 1979, Miss Sudina has achieved acclaim as a bilingual poetess and translator. Since 2008, she has published four poetry anthologies (around 700 poems). Further, she has close to 200 poetry translations to her credit, bringing hitherto unknown Russian poets to the world audience. “St. John of Kronstadt and a Girl” is a short poem that narrates an epiphanic moment in the speaker’s life. The anodyne property of poetry is subtly hinted at through this poem even as the heart ache of the speaker vanishes in the presence of St John of Kronstadt.
