    • Poems about bird cherry

      - Cherry, cherries,

      You're worth daylight?

      - For the holiday of spring,

      For May blossomed.

      - And you, grass-Muravushka,

      What steleshsya soft?

      - For the holiday of spring,

      For a day or May.

      - And you, birch thin

      What are green now?

      - For a holiday for a holiday!

      For May! For spring!

      (Elena Blaginina)

      Bird cherry scented
      With spring blossomed
      And golden branches,
      That curls curled.
      And brush satin
      Under the pearls of dew
      Burn like earrings clear
      Do girls-beauty.
      And next, we protalinki,
      In the grass between the stones,
      Runs small streams
      Silver creek.


      Flowering cherries in Umraniye,
      I certainly know how to bloom,
      - That look, injure the heart,
      Fences yes hut sweep,

      Betrothed all unmarried
      Ozhenihaet guys all!
      Oh, who's there before dawn turns?
      Ah, whose laughter is heard on the logs?

      No wonder now each artist
      Told me, almost on the run,
      That the city can not sit,
      Flies to the bird cherry in the taiga!

      I followed suit for you, my friend,
      With a notebook clean, light!
      Let us now wife looking
      We - the bird cherry in the forest!

      White, snow! But it does not melt,
      A performs magic.
      We can, now lacking
      Only the color of the vernal.

      Forget the old bad weather,
      Triumph it is not given.
      Soul wide open for happiness,
      As for wild cherry - box ...

      (Vladimir Makarov)
