Mikhail Yuryevich Lermontov

Here you will find the Poem Like An Evil Spirit of poet Mikhail Yuryevich Lermontov

Like An Evil Spirit

Like an evil spirit hast thou
Shocked my heart from out its rest,
If thou'lt take it quite away now--
Thou wilt win my healing blest!

My heart thy temple evermore!
Thy face,--the altar's Godhead sign!
Not heaven's grace,--thy smiles, restore,
Grant absolution, joy divine!
