Comments about Apollon Nikolayevich Maykov
Mother And Child
'Mother, why weepest thou ever
For my little sister fair?
She is now in heaven's kingdom-
Ah, it must be wondrous there!'
'Yes, she is in heaven's glory,
But in heaven's own land, alas!
There are no butterflies nor flowers-
Nor meadows of velvet grass!'
