On the Hills of Georgia

By

Night over Georgia; mist across the heights.

Loud flows the Argava River above.

Only my chained and prancing heart's distress

remains intense, a pain so filled with you--

totally you--that all its darkness lights.

How can I help, combustible anew,

but live in love, even a bitter love?--

being powerless to live in lovelessness.

By Alexander Pushkin Translated from the Russian by Peter Viereck
