 Sun I bring my eyelashes

and wind - the outstretched hands,

and run barefoot and smiling again

of white pebbles and lit.


Trees kept green hair

and the clouds - swollen sails, white –

 my eyes smiling look,

look at me and the birds stopped flying.


I run like a spring volnokrila,

 faster than radiation, winds,

and pearls of joy in me I hid,

childhood most beautiful flower.
