PBC0079: anxiety at future

PBC 79 expresses a nationalist feeling of anxiety about the future of their country while in the midst of political tumult and uncertainty. Russia becomes a land over which hangs “foul weather” of unhappiness and thinking otherwise is shameful (W228). Birds of ill omen, the cuckoo and crow, hover around houses and stir dread among listeners (W9, W17). For some, the feeling is enough to move some to think about abandoning their country forever (W27).
