Beyond Holy Russia

Michael Hughes


Texte intégral

1An Englishman (‘To Stephen Graham’)

2I went an Englishman among the Russians,
Set out from Archangel and walked among them,
A hundred miles,
Another hundred miles,
A moujik among moujiks,
Dirty as earth is dirty.
And found them simple and devout and kind,
Met God among them in their houses –
And I returned to Englishmen, a Russian.

3Witter Bynner, A Canticle of Pan

4Умом Россию не понять,
Аршином общим не измерить.
У ней особенная стать,
В Россию можно только верить!

5Fyodor Tiutchev
