Where waves of the
Terek are waltzing
In Dariel's wickedest pass,
There rises from bleakest of storm crags
An ancient grey towering mass.
In this tower by mad winds assulated,
Sat ever Tamar, the Queen—
A heavenly angel of beauty,
With a spirit of hell's own demesne.
(Russian Lyrics, Bianchi, 1916)
