MIKHAIL LERMONTOV: "The People Of Israel, Cry, Cry!"

"The People Of Israel, Cry, Cry!"

1830
The people of Israel, cry, cry!
You lost your star, divine and blessed;
It will not ever light the sky -
And dark will catch the earthly place.
There is, at last, a single man,
Who'd lost the whole world at that;
Void of a thought, a sense, midst plains,
He sought her trace's easy shade!
