I spent a month in Russia this summer and found it to be very beautiful. It is such a mysterious place. St. Petersburg is like nowhere else on earth. Many of the world’s authors and poets have called it home. The white nights of St. Petersburg was breath taking. No wonder Pushkin and Dostoevsky have lived on in many a generations of Russians. This is just a small poem about that place.

 

The banks of the Neva are dark and daunting.

They are filled with the voices of the past still haunting.

 

The Bronze Horseman stares out across her shores,

Gleaming at the challenge of the enemy once more.

 

Alas the snake that entwines the horseman’s feet,

 He has come for him in battle to seek.

 

Striking down this serpent upon shore,

Striking and striking, flailing it once more.

 

The banks of the Neva are dark and daunting.

They are filled with the voices of the past still haunting.
