C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
On Skobelev
By Yakov Polonsky (1819–1898)
 
Translation of John Pollen

HE stood alone!
Around, from East, from West,
By Russia watched from far,
A giant—nay! a god of war.
Beneath the hostile fire he stood        5
Unmoved, in reckless hardihood.
His snow-white vest on battle-field
Seemed covered by St. Michael’s shield.
And now his life is reft; that strength
Broken at length.        10
