Gavrila Romanovich Derzhavin Poems

  • On The Death Of Prince Meshchersky
    O, Voice of time! O, metal's clang!

  • God

    Alive in ever-moving matter,
    Eternal in the flow of time,
    God faceless, with a trinity of faces! ...
  • To Rulers And Judges

    It's higher than the Pyramids, than metal it is harder;
    Swift winds and thunder cannot knock it down
    The flight of time cannot demolish it....

    And sink into oblivion
    All peoples, kingdoms and their kings....

If all were as happy as we;

And mutual fear brings peace;
Till the selfish loves increase.
Then Cruelty knits a snare,
