The Leaves Turned Yellow


Adolf P. Shvedchikov – TRANSCEND Media Service

The leaves turned yellow,
Someone in the fall is again in disgrace,
The cold of January is close again,
The winds never blow in vain,
And torture wanders around the world,
They beat and beat by rockets from the bow.
Nobody meets you with bread and salt,
Nobody calls you friendly to the table.
Somebody drive a wedge again,
Will someone survive to gray hair?
What kind of time comes,
When you cannot breathe more?
