Velimir Khlebnikov is a lesser known Russian poet, but he was at the very beginning of the Russian futurist movement. 

The night is full of constellations.
What advent, what intelligence
of freedom or restraint
shines in your wide pages, book
above me, what fate must I make out
in the wide midnight sky?
