Excerpt from The Demon

Oh, Caucasus, to thee, majestic, wild,
I sing my lay, its faltering strains confessing -
Inspire the singer, as thou would'st thy child,
With snowy halo of paternal blessing.
'Twas thou, whose spell my youthful thoughts beguiled
With chains as strong as fate, as love caressing -
In northern lands thou knowest not - even there
My heart was thine always and everywhere.

Even as a boy I roamed, thine ardent lover,
O'er crags and beetling rocks with timorous tread,
Where thou, like Allah's worshippers, did'st cover
With misty turban thine imperial head,
Where homing eagle paused awhile to hover,
And freer winds their courses onward sped,
There on the dizzy peak my dreamland fancies
Whirled on with these through ether's broad expanses.

Since then till now long years have rolled between.
Once more among thy cliffs behold our meeting!
Kindly thy welcome to the boy has been,
Now to the exile kindly be thy greeting.
For grief thou gav'st oblivion serene
To one who sought thee, love for love entreating.
Lo! he again invokes thee here and now,
Whose thoughts are thine and all whose song art thou.
