    Pushkin Uncensored! ? ?

    Ok, so I've found this poem...

    Царь увидел пред собою
    Столик с шахматной доской.

    Вот на шахматную доску
    Рать солдатиков из воску
    Он расставил в стройный ряд.
    Грозно куколки стоят,
    Подбоченясь на лошадках,
    В коленкоровых перчатках,
    В оперенных шишачках,
    С палашами на плечах.

    Тут лохань перед собою
    Приказал налить водою;
    Плавать он пустил по ней
    Тьму прекрасных кораблей,
    Барок, каторог и шлюпок
    Из ореховых скорлупок -
    . . . . . . . . . . . .
    . . . . . . . . . . . .
    А прозрачные ветрильцы
    Будто бабочкины крильцы.

    I'm interested to know what the censored portion originally contained. Does anyone know, or know where I might find this information?
    Thanks

    I think that the missing lines ("...") aren't censored, but that these lines weren't fully finnished, and that Pushkin left these lines blank to finnish them later (this could be a poem from his note book, with unfinnished works). But if this poem was published when he still was alive, than this must be censored: who publishes unfinnished poems?

    Крыльца - pl dim крыло
