Выхожу один я на дорогу;
Сквозь туман кремнистый путь блестит;
Ночь тиха. Пустыня внемлет богу,
И звезда с звездою говорит.

~Михаил Юрьевич Лермонтов~

Myself alone… out on the road I trod;

The flinty path is glist’ning in the mist;

The night is still.  The desert harkens God,

And star communes with star in heaven’s tryst.

~Mikhail Yuryevich Lermontov~

[translated freely by Michael Horvitz]


Sonnet LV


Not marble, nor the gilded monuments
Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme;
But you shall shine more bright in these contents
Than unswept stone besmear'd with sluttish time.

When wasteful war shall statues overturn,
And broils root out the work of masonry,
Nor Mars his sword nor war's quick fire shall burn
The living record of your memory.

'Gainst death and all-oblivious enmity
Shall you pace forth; your praise shall still find room
Even in the eyes of all posterity
That wear this world out to the ending doom.

So, till the judgment that yourself arise,
You live in this, and dwell in lover's eyes.
