Transfiguration: III
By Sergei Yesenin
EH, Russians,
Fowlers of the universe.
You who trailed heaven with the net of dawn,
Lift your trumpets!
Beneath the plow of storm        5
The dumb earth roars.
Golden-tusked, the colter breaks
The cliffs.
A new sower
Roams the fields.        10
New seeds
He casts into the furrows.
A guest of light drives toward us
In a coach.
Across the clouds        15
A mare races.
The breech-band on the mare:
The blue;
The bells on the breech-band:
The stars.        20
