“Bloody Mountains” by Magomed Mamakayev
A poem about love of the homeland which was written by the prominent Chechen poet Magomed Mamakayev.
I love one above all on earth,
All my life belong to just one,
From the first years, clanging at daybreak,
To old age, full of gray hair.
She was and will always be right,
In her darling in this world she shall not find
That I am guilty – let her condemn,
I love this one all the same.
There is no one more perfect and bright,
Without her I know not day from night.
She blossoms all the more brightly, never growing old,
Oh, it’s the one and only my native land!
Magomed Mamakayev – 1928
