Gleb Zavlanov Poems
The Great Depression
It walked like shadow in the night Without a word, a sound And when it struck, a vicious bite It split the sky and ground
Song Of The Nightingale
Singly sweetly in its tree Caressing clouds in Heaven’s dale Singly softly, sweet to me This gracious, little nightingale
When Clouds Upon The Summer Breeze All R...
When clouds upon the summer breeze all rest And easeful, take upon their faery flight Into the paling crimson of the west Where noonday dreams wilt in the breath of night,
Sweet love, if death’s black net my mind shall cover And drape with doubly twining nets my heart, Be not the one to weep and cry, dear lover For never shall I from your essence, part.
Down through the Alps, immortal, standing high Whose feathers are the clouds of passing days And whose sweet bosoms touch the milky sky And whose faint breaths birth thick and gentle haze;
Ode To Spring
Fair Spring, a lady, palely loitering, Whose brow is decked with flowers and with dew, Whose bosom births youth’s essence which does bring Unto the barren glades, a glory, new,
Oh Hypnos lord of all the lands of dream, Whose slumb’rous breath weaves eyes with poppy leaf, And whose sweet lullabies mortals relieve Of throes, and shields them from the evil scheme

Give me my pen and feed my heart with muse, And I shall write until the night transforms Into the morning, when the earth imbues And quakes with spirits of the sleeping worms.
On A Golden Finch
Oh, faery finch, whose golden form does climb Athwart the starry bays of poesies, sweet, I hear your voice, and drown in slumber’s clime, As I sit, pond’ring in my woolen seat.
Dear love, you are a snow-girt swan who glides Along the pearly traces of a lake For in your breast, unearthly grace resides: A power, like morn’s bud, wide and awake.
Ode To A Bee
Swift bee, the gilded messenger of bliss,
Begirt with golden stars of Heaven’s span,
What draws you to the clover’s gentle kiss?
