Afanasy Afanasyevich Fet Night 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.
    Nightingales, a sigh, a whisper
    In a shady nook
    And the lullaby in silver
    Of a lazy brook.
  • 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.
    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?
  • 5.
    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.
