RUNNING THE WORLD: ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA

**********


I love you, Peter’s creation, I love your stern

Harmonious look, the Neva’s majestic flow,

Her granite banks, the iron tracery

Of your railings, the transparent twilight and

The moonless glitter of your pensive nights

Flaunt your beauty, Peter’s City!

Stand unshakable like Russia,

So even the conquered elements may make

Their peace with you.
