Is that half-remembered quote Driving You Crazy!

The sons of the Prophet are valiant and bold,
And quite unaccustomed to fear;
And the bravest of all was a man, so I'm told,
Called (something?something?) Emir.
There are heroes in plenty,
And well known to fame,
In the legions that fight for the Czar;
But none of such fame
As the man by the name
Of Ivan ( Petrofsky? Skavinsky?) Skovar?
