Adolf P. Shvedchikov – TRANSCEND Media Service

Everything that nature has built,
Blue sky and dark night,
Black fallow spring field,
First swallow’s rapid flight,
A ripe bunch of grapes,
A crimson delightful sunrise,
Tell me, who all that creates,
How did it all arise?
Longing love’s liqueur,
Broken heart’s grief,
Why does it all occur,
Have a soul anew, believe?
Our life is a dense jungle
Covered by a mystical veil,
Full of promises and juggles,
Enormously excitable ale!
