Gavril Derzhavin

V. DERJAVIN: "When Your Bright Spirit..."

"When Your Bright Spirit..."

(From Omar Khayyam)
When your bright spirit leaves your body earthy,
Another master enters home-desert;
But he won’t know what became of that
That was with life, thought and great passions blazing.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, February, 2003
