Poem Title:  Sultry Night

Poem Category:  Nature Poems

Poet:  Boris Pasternak

Poet Biography: 
Boris Pasternak (1890-1960) was a Russian novelist and poet



Poem: 
It drizzled, but not even grasses would bend within the bag of storm; Dust only gulped its rain in pellets, the iron roof-in powder form. The village did not hope for healing. Deep as a swoon the poppies yearned among the rye in inflammation, And God in fever tossed and turned. In all the sleepless, universal, the damp and orphaned latitude, the sighs and moans, their posts deserting, Fled with the whirlwind in pursuit. Behind them ran blind slanting raindrops Hard on their heels, and by the fence the wind and dripping branches argued- my heart stood still-at my expense. I felt this dreadful garden chatter Would last forever, since the street Would also notice me, and mutter With bushes, rain and window shutter. No way to challenge my defeat- they'd argue, talk me off my feet.
