Apollon Nikolayevich Maykov

An Easter Greeting


The lark at sunrise trills it high-
The greeting Christ is risen!
And through the wood the black-bird pipes
The greeting Christ is risen!
Beneath the eaves the swallows cry
The greeting Christ is risen!
Throughout the world man's heart proclaims
The greeting Christ is risen!
And echo answers from the grave
In truth, yes, He is risen!

Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
