    lines from poem

    I can't figure out the first line of this:

    одна уступка разделенью...
    держите крепче! Я пропал!
    Но эти дни меж днём и тенью!
    бессчётный счёт московских шпал!

    is it something like "one concession is already made"?

    разделенье = разделение, it means division, separation, segregation
    одна уступка разделенью... - "one concession to division (segregation)".
    "Happy new year, happy new year
    May we all have a vision now and then
    Of a world where every neighbour is a friend"
