As In The Globe Embraced By Ocean

Fyodor Ivanovich Tyutchev 1803 ( Ovstug near Bryansk, Oryol Governorate) – 1873 (Saint Petersburg)



As is the globe embraced by ocean, so
Embraced is earthly life by dreams and fancies.
Night comes unsought, and at the shore's defences
    The breakers strike blow after blow.

Their call is loud: they plead and onward urge us...
A magic boat waits in the harbour - we
Are by the tide borne off that round us surges
     Into the seas' infinity.

From out the depths the sky stares, strange and boundless,
By  blazing stars in all their glory lit,
And we sail on, the vastness all around us
     A fathomless and fiery pit.
