Afanasy Afanasyevich Fet Earth Poems

  • 1.
    My face turned upwards to the sky
    One summer night I lay upon some hay
    A lively close-knit starry chorus
    Was flickering all around.
  • 2.
    I wake. Yes, it's a coffin lid.-With effort
    I reach my hands out and I call
    For help. Yes, I recall the tortures
    Of dying.-Yes, this is no dream!-
  • 3.
    Upon a haystack in lands of South,
    I lay, while facing skies of night,
    The choir of stars, alive and couth,
    Was trembling, spread at every side.
  • 4.
    By life tormented, and by cunning hope,
    When my soul surrenders in its battle with them,
    Day and night I press my eyelids closed
    And sometimes I'm vouchsafed peculiar visions.

Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey Poem
 by Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey

They that eat the uncrushed grape
Walk with steady heels:
Lo, now, how they stare and gape
Where the poet reels!
He has drunk the sheer divine
Concentration of the vine.
