Alexander Pushkin

Poems by Alexander Pushkin
Ivan Panin, trans.
(Available as FREE Ebook

In the world’s desert, sombre and shoreless
Mysteriously three springs have broken thro’:
Of youth the spring, a boisterous spring and rapid;
It boils, it runs, it sparkles, and it murmurs.
The Castalian Spring, with wave of inspiration
In the world’s deserts its exiles waters;
The last spring–the cold spring of forgetfulness,
Of all sweetest, quench it does the heart’s fire.
