"Dear Old Pushkin"

Poem by: Darangélica Arroyo Carmona

UHS ENGL 1202 Section 137

Teaching Team 2: María M., Indiana, Norman and Sergio

Prof. Víctor Vázquez

 

 

You, who read and learn,
the breath and smell of words,
listen, respect and observe
the life of a man and his verse.

 

Russia was blessed,
Moscow shined.
The day Pushkin came
the world won a prize.
Nannies took care of the little boy;
They gave him a million of valuable tools.
He kept his learnings safe in his heart,
and used them for the rest of his life.

 

He was a privileged child
with noble heritage,
which saved him often in life
and made him desirable for many.
You may not believe me,
but I wouldn’t lie
by telling you he
published first at fourteen.

 

His family didn’t have
that much of a fortune.
Old Pushkin relied
on what his nannies showed him.
He didn’t have much money,
he didn’t have much freedom.
Suppressed like the Russians
of the land where he lived on.

 

Into trouble he was
for jotting down his opinions.
Between agony and rhymes
censored was his wisdom.
“Ode to Liberty” cost him an exile,
but later he returned.
Sad, he could no longer publish
and Nicholas I wouldn't care.

 

But not everything was grays and cries.
The poet himself got his heart stolen
when he married a marvelously beautiful woman.
Three Children complete the family, and sadness now dies.

 

And so, and so went on his life
with ups and downs and rocky paths.
A duel was made for his last shot
and dear old Pushkin died, he died.

 

Many, many mourned his death,
but now people just celebrate.
Alexander Pushkin’s name
is all over the world, I say.
Monuments, streets and pretty things
let people remember such talent and grace.
And every Russian in the world
Knows and loves Pushkin’s life and work.

"Alexander Pushkin" (Poem by: Noemí Aybar Montilla)

Born in Moscow

Aristocrat by birth

Lived his youth

with privileges and eventual fame.

 

Wrote with skill

Even at a young age

Later on giving birth

to "Yevgeny Onegin", a masterpiece of verse.

 

Found work in St. Petersburg

aroused suspicion with his words

the government acted 

and to Southern Russia he was sent.

 

His behavior uncontrollable

a man unrestrained

for this dismissed from service

and banished to his estate.

 

Once again in Moscow

isolated and unhappy

once again a suspect

writing, interacting.

 

He began to work

Thus his finest poems

had limited freedom

thus his collection of proses.

 

Finally married

Husband of Natalya Goncharova

Returned to service

We heard his final uproar.

 

Rebel by heart

a duel that ended his life

finest poet Russia produced

Alexander Pushkin for you.
