To love all ages are submissive,
And yet to young and virgin hearts
Its sudden gusts are beneficial,
As to the fields spring tempests are.

They freshen in the rain of passion,
They are renewed, matured, refashioned,
Then life gives powerfully, in truth,
Both splendid color and sweet fruit.

Eugene Onegin (XXIX) by Alexander Pushkin
Translated by Julian Henry Lowenfeld
