Dear connoiseurs of Russian poetry!

Does any of you know the Russian poet who has compared Earth to a tear in God's
eye? I seem to remember only one line of the poem I'm looking for: "blestish'
slezoi v zenitse Boga" (or, perhaps, "chisteishaia sleza v zenitse Boga"). But
who has written it? A search in Google yielded no results.

Many thanks for your help,
