Here you will find the Poem I Bless You, Forests of poet Aleksey Konstantinovich Tolstoy
I bless you, forests, valleys, fields, mountains, waters, I bless freedom and blue skies. I bless my staff and my humble rags. And the steppe from beginning to end, And the sun's light, and night's darkness, And the path I walk, pauper that I am, And, in the field every blade of grass, and every star in the sky! O! if only I could encompass all life, And join my soul with yours. O! if only I could embrace you all, Enemies, friends and brothers, and all nature, And enfold all nature in my arms!
