Here you will find the Poem On Departure For The Caucas of poet Mikhail Yuryevich Lermontov

On Departure For The Caucas

Farewell my hateful Russian country!
People of lord and serf you are--
Farewell, salute, bent knee and hand-kiss,
Three-masters, uniform and star!

Soon will the Caucas now conceal me,
There I shall not discovered be
By eyes and ears of paid, false sergeants--
Who all do hear and all do see!
