C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Renewal
By Count Aleksey Konstantinovich Tolstoy (1817–1875)
 
Translation of S. N. Wolkonsky

BRIGHTER look the early flowers,
  Louder sounds the skylark’s strain;
Blue the air and green the bowers,
  And the heart feels young again.
 
Shaking off all bonds and fetters,        5
  Flinging every chain aside,
Life in sunshine flows and glitters
  Like the freely flowing tide.
 
Do you hear fresh voices singing,
  And all pulses beating high,        10
As if chords unseen were ringing,
  Tightly drawn from earth to sky?
