The Day Of Liberation


Once again the spring's in the Victory Gardens,

Once again the 10th of April to Odessa's come,

The memory of that day hardens

This wonderful feeling of freedom without alarm.



About 30 months the occupation of Odessa lasted

The streets and houses by fascists were blasted.

But the nation with sense of humor no one can kill,

The defense of the city was everyone's freewill.



In the sea of sunlight is the blue and free sky,

The wings of the seagulls soared into skywards,

The glory to Odessa city is in the seagulls cry,

Wind orchestras play celebrations chords.



The southern sunny city today looks so pretty

And the faces of odessites as usual are so witty.

Their spirit of freedom is light as the sea breeze,

An odessite will never bend the knees.



The second birthday, the day of celebration,

The day of spring, the day of liberation.
