The Russian Review/Volume 1/June 1916/Who Stopped You Here

By A. S. Pushkin.

Translated for "The Russian Review."

Who stopped you here, ye waves and billows?
Who fettered tight your mighty course?
Who changed to silent, marshy waters
Those torrents, full of life and force?

Come storms and winds, come plow the billows,
Come, rend apart this barrier strong!
Come thou, tempest, freedom's symbol,
Rush o'er the waves enslaved so long!
