TO MOSCOW, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Across the steppe we journeyed
Last Line: The jewel of the czars!
Alternate Author Name(s): Dean
Subject(s): Moscow; Russia; Soviet Union; Russians

ACROSS the steppe we journeyed,
The brown, fir-darkened plain
That rolls to east and rolls to west,
Broad as the billowy main,
When lo! a sudden splendor
Came shimmering through the air,
As if the clouds should melt and leave
The heights of heaven bare, --
A maze of rainbow domes and spires
Full glorious on the sky,
With wafted chimes from many a tower
As the south-wind went by,
And a thousand crosses lightly hung
That shone like morning stars, --
'T was the Kremlin wall! 't was Moscow, --
The jewel of the Czars!
