(no subject)

You will not grasp her with your mind
Or cover with a common label,
For Russia is one of a kind —
Believe in her, if you are able...

translated by Anatoly Liberman, published in "Russian Life in the United States

You can't know Russia only with your mind,
Can't measure her by kilometer:
Russia is the only one of her kind -
To know her you must believe in her
