Afanasy Afanasyevich Fet Heart 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.
    With one firm thrust to force the boat of living
    From off the sands, and, by a wave tossed high,
    Be toward a new life borne, a new beginning,
    To feel the wind from scented shores sweep nigh,
  • 3.
    What grief! The alley's end
    Is lost in snow again today,
    And once again, the silver snakes
    Are crawling through the snow.
  • 4.
    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.
  • 5.
    When you were reading those tormented lines
    In which the heart's resonant flame sends out glowing streams
    And passion's fatal torrents rear up,-
    Didn't you recall a single thing?
  • 6.
    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.
  • 7.
    I always s like the northern birches:
    Their view, so downcast and grave,
    The fever, which poor souls scorches,
    Cools like the mute speech of a grave.

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.
