    Только этого мало

    I tried to make a translation of this poem, but I think I need some help.

    Thanks

    Вот и лето прошло,
    Словно и не бывало.
    На пригреве тепло.
    Только этого мало.


    Now the summer has passed
    As it didn’t used to
    On a warm ???
    Only it was too little

    Всё, что сбыться могло,
    Мне,как лист пятипалый,
    Прямо в руки легло,
    Только этого мало.


    Everything that could come true
    To me, as a five-finger leave
    Straight into lying hands
    Only it was too little

    Понапрасну ни зло,
    Ни добро не пропало,
    Всё горело светло,
    Только этого мало.


    In vain neither evil,
    Nor good ????
    Everything brightly ??
    Only it was to little

    Жизнь брала под крыло,
    Берегла и спасала,
    Мне и вправду везло.
    Только этого мало.


    Life took me under its wings
    Protected and saved
    I have been really lucky.
    Only it was too little

    Листьев не обожгло,
    Веток не обломало...
    День промыт, как стекло,
    Только этого мало.


    Leaves have not burnt,
    Branches are not broken off.
    Day is washed out, like glass,
    Only it a little.
    Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    Now the summer has passed
    As if there was no summer
    It's warm under the sun
    But it's not enough

    Everything that could come true
    To me, as a five-fingered leave
    Landed on my hands
    But it's not enough

    Neither evil nor good
    Turned out to be unnecessary
    Everything was glowing in light
    But this is not enough

    Life took me under its wing (=protected me)
    Treated me tenderly, saved me
    I was lucky indeed
    But it's not enough

    Leaves are not burnt,
    Branches are not broken off.
    Day is washed out, like glass,
    Only it's not enough

    I tried to help. Sorry if I made some mistakes - have no dictionary at hand
    Life is great and so are you

    Now the summer has gone
    As if it had never been.
    In the sunshine it's warm
    But that’s not all I need.

    All that might come to pass
    Like a five-cornered leaf
    Fell straight into my hands
    But that’s not all I need.

    Neither evil nor good
    Went up in smoke indeed
    It all burnt with clear light
    But that’s not all I need.

    Life took me under its wing
    Guarding me, saving me,
    I was lucky enough
    But that’s not all I need.

    There are no leaves scorched
    There are no broken twigs
    Clean as glass is the day
    But that’s not all I need.

    если что, исправьте ошибки
    Придёт весна и мы раскроем окна..
    Айда на встречу друг другу!
    Придёт весна и яркое солнце
    Растопит лёд старых обид глупых.
