Celestial clouds are called eternal pilgrims, who constantly travel across the sky. “Steppe azure” and “chain of pearly” space they rush from north to south. The same fate is prepared for the lyrical hero. Heavenly clouds, eternal wanderers! Steppe azure, a chain of pearls You rush, as if I, exiles, From the lovely north to the south. And here the lyrical hero wonders who or what causes this escape through the beautiful sky. Maybe this is the dictates of fate. Or maybe the cause of escape was secret envy or open anger. Sounds doubtful lyric hero in the assumption that the basis for the travel of the cloud-wanderers was a perfect crime.
Although it is possible that the reason was the poisonous slander of friends who used to help on the path of life. And the lyrical hero himself finds the answer to this question. The barren field was bored by the wandering travelers. It is possible that there is something else, since the poet puts an ellipsis in this line. They are too cold, so they are strangers to passion and suffering. They are forever free, so they do not and probably will not have a homeland or a shelter in exile. No, you are bored with barren fields… Strangers are alien to you and alien to suffering; Always cold, forever free. You do not have a homeland, there is no exile for you.
In this poem by M. Yu. Lermontov, the motives of loneliness and melancholy, characteristic of many of his works, are clearly manifested. Also, the poem
And the most important thing is that there will not be a single friend that could share difficult stages with you. The basis of the poem is the reception of a comparison, which consists in the fact that the poet compares himself with the clouds of heaven. Comparison is a word or expression that contains the likening of one thing to another, one situation to another. The poet uses this comparison to show that his destiny, like that of the clouds, consists in eternal wanderings. He, too, will always travel on this earth, finding no shelter anywhere.
