What scenes of splendour!
Mountain peaks, thrones of eternal snows,
seemed to the eye
like a motionless bank of clouds;
and in their midst Mount Elbrus,
huge and majestic, twin-headed
colossus glistening with crown of ice,
gleamed white in the azure sky.
— The Prisoner of the Caucasus, Alexander Pushkin
