A Winter Evening poem – Alexander Pushkin

A poem by Alexander Pushkin – Pouchkine, Pooshkin (1799-1837), in English translation


Sable clouds by tempest driven,

Snowflakes whirling in the gales,

Hark–it sounds like grim wolves howling,

Hark–now like a child it wails!

Creeping through the rustling straw thatch,

Rattling on the mortared walls,

Like some weary wanderer knocking–

On the lowly pane it falls.

Fearsome darkness fills the kitchen,

Drear and lonely our retreat,

Speak a word and break the silence,

Dearest little Mother, sweet!

Has the moaning of the tempest

Closed thine eyelids wearily?

Has the spinning wheel’s soft whirring

Hummed a cradle song to thee?

Sweetheart of my youthful Springtime,

Thou true-souled companion dear–

Let us drink! Away with sadness!

Wine will fill our hearts with cheer.

Sing the song how free and careless

Birds live in a distant land–

Sing the song of maids at morning

Meeting by the brook’s clear strand!

Sable clouds by tempest driven,

Snowflakes whirling in the gales,

Hark–it sounds like grim wolves howling,

Hark–now like a child it wails!

Sweetheart of my youthful Springtime,

Thou true-souled companion dear,

Let us drink! Away with sadness!

Wine will fill our hearts with cheer!

Why Feed The Early Signs Of Boredom? poem – Alexander Pushkin

A poem by Alexander Pushkin – Pouchkine, Pooshkin (1799-1837), in English translation


Why feed the early signs of boredom

With sinister and dismal thought,

And wait for separation, burdened

With sorrow, lonesome and distraught?

The day of grief is close at hand!

You’ll stand, alone, out in the sun,

And try to bring back once again

These days, but they will long be gone.

Misfortune! then, you’ll be ready

To die in exile, on the street,

If you could only see your lady,

Or hear the shuffle of her feet.

Upon The Hills Of Georgia poem – Alexander Pushkin

A poem by Alexander Pushkin – Pouchkine, Pooshkin (1799-1837), in English translation


Dark falls upon the hills of Georgia,

I hear Aragva’s roar.

I’m sad and light, my grief – transparent,

My sorrow is suffused with you,

With you, with you alone…My melancholy

Remains untouched and undisturbed,

And once again my heart ignites and loves

Because it can’t do otherwise.

Under The Blue Skies… poem – Alexander Pushkin

A poem by Alexander Pushkin – Pouchkine, Pooshkin (1799-1837), in English translation


Under the blue skies of her native land

She languished and began to fade…

Until surely there flew without a sound

Above me, her young shade;

But there stretches between us an uncrossable line.

In vain my feelings I tried to awaken.

The lips that brought the news were made of stone,

And I listened like a stone, unshaken.

So this is she for whom my soul once burned

In the tense and heavy fire,

Obsessed, exhausted, driven out of my mind

By tenderness and desire!

Where are the torments? Where is love? Alas!

For the unreturning days’

Sweet memory, and for the poor credulous

Shade, I find no lament, no tears.

Under A Portrait Of Jukowsky poem – Alexander Pushkin

A poem by Alexander Pushkin – Pouchkine, Pooshkin (1799-1837), in English translation


The charm and sweetness of his magic verse

Will mock the envious years for centuries!

Since youth, on hearing them, for glory burns,

The wordless sorrow comfort in them sees,

And careless joy to wistful musing turns.

To My Friends poem – Alexander Pushkin

A poem by Alexander Pushkin – Pouchkine, Pooshkin (1799-1837), in English translation

The chain of golden days and nights

Is still your heritage from Deity,

And, still, the languid maidens’ eyes

Are turned to you as well intently.

So, play and sing, friends of my years!

Lose very quickly passing evening,

And, at your heedless joy and singing,

I will be smiling through my tears.

To Gnedich poem – Alexander Pushkin

A poem by Alexander Pushkin – Pouchkine, Pooshkin (1799-1837), in English translation

With Homer you conversed alone for days and nights,

Our waiting hours were passing slowly,

And shining you came down from the mysterious heights

And brought to us your tablets holy –

So? in the wilderness, beneath a tent, you found

Us, feasting mad in empty gaiety,

Singing our savage songs and galloping around

Some newly hand-created deity.

We grew confused, aloof from your good rays hid we.

Then, seized of wrath and desolation,

Have you, O prophet, cursed your mindless family And smashed your tablets in frustration?

No, you have cursed us not. From heights you disappear

Into the shade of little valleys;

You love the heavens’ crash, but also wish to hear

Bees humming over red azaleas.

Such is the honest bard. With passion he laments

At solemn fairs of Melpomena –

To smile upon the crowd’s plebeian merriments,

The liberties of coarse arena.

Now Rome is calling him, now majesties of Troy,

Now elder Ossian’s craggy gravels –

And in the meantime he will hear with childish joy

Of Czar Sultan’s heroic travels.

To The Don poem – Alexander Pushkin

A poem by Alexander Pushkin – Pouchkine, Pooshkin (1799-1837), in English translation


Through the Steppes, see there he glances!

Silent flood glad hailed by me,–

Thy far distant sons do proffer

Through me, greeting fond to thee!

Every stream knows thee as brother,

Don, thou river boasted wide!

The Araxes and Euphrates

Send thee greeting as they glide.

Fresh and strengthened for pursuing,

Scenting home within thy gleam–

Drink again the Don’ish horses,

Flowing boundary, of thy stream!

Faithful Don! There also greet thee

Thy true warriors bold and free–

Let thy vineyard’s foaming bubbles

In the glass be spilled to thee!

To Natasha poem – Alexander Pushkin

A poem by Alexander Pushkin – Pouchkine, Pooshkin (1799-1837), in English translation


The crimson summer now grows pale;

Clear, bright days now soar away;

Hazy mist spreads through the vale,

As the sleeping night turns gray;

The barren cornfields lose their gold;

The lively stream has now turned cold;

The curly woods are gray and stark,

And the heavens have grown dark.

Where are you, my light, Natasha?

No one’s seen you, – I lament.

Don’t you want to share the passion

Of this moment with a friend?

You have not yet met with me

By the pond, or by our tree,

Though the season has turned late,

We have not yet had a date.

Winter’s cold will soon arrive

Fields will freeze with frost, so bitter.

In the smoky shack, a light,

Soon enough, will shine and glitter.

I won’t see my love, – I’ll rage

Like a finch, inside a cage,

And at home, depressed and dazed,

I’ll recall Natasha’s grace.
