Shaul Tchernichovsky

(1875 - 1943 / Russia)


Poem by Shaul Tchernichovsky

Laugh, laugh at all my dreams!
What I dream shall yet come true!
Laugh at my belief in man,
At my belief in you.

Freedom still my soul demands,
Unbartered for a calf of gold.
For still I do believe in man,
And in his spirit, strong and bold.

And in the future I still believe
Though it be distant, come it will
When nations shall each other bless,
And peace at last the earth shall fill.

    Beautiful verse. You just have to keep believing, otherwise you might as well give up. I wish I could find a book of this man's poetry.(Report)Reply
