TRANSFIGURATION: 3, by             Poem Explanation        
First Line: Eh, russians, / fowlers of the universe
Last Line: The stars.
Alternate Author Name(s): Yesenin, Sergei

Eh, Russians,
Fowlers of the universe.
You who trailed heaven with the net of dawn,
Lift your trumpets!

Beneath the plow of storm
The dumb earth roars.
Golden-tusked, the colter breaks
The cliffs.

A new sower
Roams the fields.
New seeds
He casts into the furrows.

A guest of light drives toward us
In a coach.
Across the clouds
A mare races.

The breech-band on the mare:
The blue;
The bells on the breech-band:
The stars.
