Yuri Kazakov
From Two in December
Translated by Bernard Isaacs

How happy he had been and there was probably greater happiness in store, if only there was no war.

Lately he had been thinking a lot about war and hating it. But now, looking at the sparkling snow, at the woods and fields, listening to the hum and clank of the rails, he felt sure that there would be no war, nor would there be death as such. Because, he thought, there were moments in life when a man couldn’t think of its terrors or believe in the existence of evil.
