Treasure Island

Mikhail Yuryevich Lermontov

(1814 - 1841 / Russia)

Forever you, the unwashed Russia!


Forever you, the unwashed Russia!
The land of slaves, the land of lords:
And you, the blue-uniformed ushers,
And people who worship them as gods.
I hope, from your tyrannic hounds
To save me with Caucasian wall:
From their eye that sees through ground,
From their ears that hear all.

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
