Our sons have gone
to serve the Reds
to serve the Reds
to risk their heads!

O bitter,bitter pain,
Sweet living!
A torn overcoat
an Austrian gun!

COMMENTS OF THE POEM

I read a much better version translated by Paul Schmidt. It's much longer. I read it in a book of Russian poetry called 'The Stray Dog Cabaret' It's a beautiful poem. I wish I knew Russian so I could get the complete unaltered effect.
