The Cloud
By Mikhail Lermontov (1814–1841)
 
Translation of Nathan Haskell Dole

TO the giant cliff’s wide bosom straying
  Came a golden cloud, and soon was sleeping.
  In the early dawn it woke, and leaping,
Hurried down the blue sky, gayly playing.
 
On the old cliff’s wrinkled breast remaining,        5
  Was a humid trace of dew-drops only.
  Lost in thought the cliff stands, silent, lonely;
In the wilderness its tears are raining!
