Lines Written in Oregon by Vladimir Nabokov.

Part 1 of 2.


Esmeralda! now we rest
Here, in the bewitched and blest
Mountain forests of the West.
Here the very air is stranger.
Damzel, anchoret, and ranger
Share the woodland’s dream and danger
And to think I deemed you dead!
(In a dungeon, it was said;
Tortured, strangled); but instead –
Blue birds from the bluest fable,
Bear and hare in coats of sable,
Peacock moth on picnic table.
Huddled roadsigns softly speak
Of Lake Merlin, Castle Creek,
And (obliterated) Peak.

    I have been really impressed with Nabokov's lyrical skill and look forward to reading more of his poems.

    I want to read his stories too. Maybe I can fit a collection into my reading schedule for this year.
