2 The Hills of Georgia The hills of Georgia are covered by the night Ahead Aragva runs through stone My feelings sad and light my sorrow is bright My sorrow is full of you alone Of you of only you... My everlasting gloom Meets neither troubles nor resistance. Again inflames and loves my poor heart for whom Without love tis no existence. 3

8 (No Transcript) 9 To a Poet A poet! Do not prize the love of people around It soon will pass -- the glorifying hum And come a court of fools and laughing of cold crowd But you must always stay firm morose and calm. Youre king live lonesome. Along the freedoms road Stride there to where just shows your free mind While modernizing fruits of thoughts beloved And not demanding you to be awarded. Awards inside of you. You are your highest court Severely then all you value your effort. Well are you satisfied oh my severe artist Youre satisfied. Then let the mob condemn your verse Spit at the altar where your fire burns And toss your brass tripod with somewhat childish wildness. 10 Sources
