Roar, land, with the final storm,
Gather for battle, for the feast,
Let a new day shine in the azure,
The old world transfigured.

Ignaty Nivinsky, “Red Lightning,” 1919
There he is—savior, master of the earth,
Multi-faced and insurgent.
He strides across the abyss of the seas.
Made of steel, undeviating and aspiring,
He scatters sparks of rebellious ideas,
And spews cleansing flames.
Wherever his powerful shout rings forth,
The depths of the earth reveal themselves,
Mountains give way in an instant before him,
The world's poles draw closer.…
A new sun he brings to the world…
He erases boundaries and borders.
With his crimson banner—symbol of struggle
We will crush the yoke of fate,
And capture enchanting paradise.
Boris Kustodiev, “The Bolshevik,” 1920
