DROVES, by             Poem Explanation        
First Line: Upon green hills in droves the horses graze
Alternate Author Name(s): Yesenin, Sergei

Upon green hills wild droves of horses blow
The golden bloom off of the days that go.

From the high hillocks to the blue-ing bay
Falls the sheer pitch of heavy manes that sway.

They toss their heads above the still lagoon
Caught with a silver bridle by the moon.

Snorting in fear of their own shadow, they,
To screen it with their manes, await the day.
