The Dream Of Winter Night
(From Kaisyn Kuliev)
‘Twas snowing. And to the snow,
To cold of the heaven and earth,
The deeper I slept the more grown
Was Chegem tulips’ warming blaze.
‘Twas snowing. Soul was singing
From whiteness of snow afar.
‘Twas snowing. Plane-trees were greening.
How green, dreams of winter, you are!…
