pesenka (1965 r)

Spring came. Finally
in the village we have a blacksmith.
It Lithuanian jacket
and Army Sash.

New smith have
named Algerdas.
He forge eats and drinks
and podkovы Quetta.

He wears, Alas, ring.
But the face is divided mustache,
if military scar,
in two, in two.

He eats and sleeps smithy.
And he sees in his sleep hooves
vinogradnuyu Sept.,
and dreams he nail.

Blacksmith, He is friends with fire.
It's nice to think about it
and look after him
the girl in twenty years!

1965, Norenskaya
