Thou shalt have no other gods before me

by Vladimir Solovyov

Original Language Russian

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Above white earth a single, single
     Star burns
And draws one along a path of ether
     To itself -- there.

Oh, why is it so? In one steady gaze
     All wonders dwell,
The mysterious sea of all life,
     And the heavens.

That gaze is so close and so clear --
     Behold it,
You, too, will be measureless and sublime --
     Master of all.
