Here you will find the Poem The Current Of Time's River of poet Gavril Romanovich Derzhavin

The Current Of Time's River

The current of time's river
Will carry off all human deeds
And sink into oblivion
All peoples, kingdoms and their kings.

And if there's something that remains
Through sounds of horn and lyre,
It too will disappear into the maw of time 
And not avoid the common fate.
