There is an ecstasy in battle,
And at the of edge of darkest chasm,
And in the enraged ocean
Amidst furious waves and turbulent night,
And in the Arabian sandstorm,
And in a breathing of the Plague

All, all, that is frightening with destruction,
To the mortal’s heart covertly holds
The inexplicable pleasures?
The immortality’s promise, perhaps!
And happy is the one who amidst the turmoil
Can find and feel them.

Aleksandr Sergeyevich Pushkin, ??? ?? ????? ???? (A Feast During the Plague) from: Little Tragedies (1830)(M. Korsakova-Kreyn transl.)
