Eternal youth
All age are obedient to the love

Here the judges have ranks in the row,
Be cover the half-horizon.
And their eyes burns by the anger,
And all words fly to me:

«The youth who was not shaving a beards,
The puppy who is not remembering a good,
Answer us: whether is the truth that you
Was with the woman in the wood yesterday? .»

I answer to the judges: «Yes!
I have found much in the wood,
By the boy I went there,
Therefrom by the man I went out! .»

Again the judges have ranks in the row,
Be cover the half-horizon.
And their eyes burns by the anger ,
And all words fly to me:

«Having forgotten about the grey hair
And having forgotten the former sins,
Are you went with the woman and to her
Did whispered the love verses? .»

«Yes! - I answer to the judges. -
Went with the woman. Did whispered the words.
And I`m believed that my destiny
Is light, while the love is live! .»

And the judges terribly frown a sight,
And again they demand:
«To us it is not understand, - speak, -
To us it is not understand. Explain...»

I speak to them: «There is a love,
And, having felt its wreath,
The youth matures easily,
And the aged man looks younger again.

Becomes by the singer the mute,
Becomes the singer a mute.
The love is every-time my companion.
I will be eternally young! »

Вечная молодость
Любви все возрасты покорны
А. С. Пушкин

Вот судьи выстроились в ряд,
Полгоризонта заслоня.
И гневом их глаза горят,
А все слова летят в меня:

«Юнец, не бривший бороды,
Щенок, не помнящий добра,
Ответь нам: правда ли, что ты
Был с женщиной в лесу вчера? ..»

Я судьям отвечаю: «Да!
Я многое в лесу нашел,
Мальчишкою я шел туда,
Оттуда я мужчиной шел! ..»

Вновь судьи выстроились в ряд,
Полгоризонта заслоня.
И гневом их глаза горят,
А все слова летят в меня:

«Забыв о седине своей
И прежние забыв грехи,
Шел с женщиною ты и ей
Шептал любовные стихи? ..»

«Да! - отвечаю судьям я. -
Шел с женщиной. Шептал слова.
И верил, что судьба моя
Светла, пока любовь жива! ..»

А судьи грозно хмурят взгляд,
И снова требуют они:
«Нам непонятно - говорят -
Нам непонятно. Объясни...»

Я говорю им: «Есть любовь,
И, ощутив ее венец,
Взрослеет запросто юнец,
А старец молодеет вновь.

Становится певцом немой,
Становится певец немым.
Любовь - всегдашний спутник мой.
Я буду вечно молодым! »
