Tolstoy

You emerged from aristocracy
In belted linen tunic
Moving among local peasants
With a splash of iris
Through birch lined paths
Like a sudden vision of egrets
Breathing scent of horses
Working plows and fields
Until your soul swelled singing
The tune of the harvesting reaper
In crisp dawn mist.
