Konstantin Vaginov‘s probably best known and possibly the best poem–see the original!

Black is the infinite morning;

Like tears, street lights stand.

Purple, booming sounds

Are heard of a faraway dawn.

And the word burns and darkens

In the square before the window,

And crowing are birds and sailing

Over its black unconsciousness.
