Treasure Island

Yuri Starostin


There are the three treasured songs at the people Rasul Gamzatov

* * *
There are the three treasured songs at the people,
And in its a human grief and fun.
One of the songs is more light of all others -
It is composed by the mother over a cradle.

The second too is the song of the mothers.
By the arm ironing the ice cheeks,
They sings its over a coffin of the sons...
And the third song is the others songs.

N.Grebneva's lane
* * *
Есть три заветных песни у людей,
И в них людское горе и веселье.
Одна из песен всех других светлей -
Ее слагает мать над колыбелью.

Вторая - тоже песня матерей.
Рукою гладя щеки ледяные,
Ее поют над гробом сыновей...
А третья песня - песни остальные.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
