Strong Tea
Нужен чайStrong tea(translated from Russian, edited, unrhymed, AА human A human being needs strong tea…
But needs no furs, though they are more expensive.
А human being needs to hear: — How I missed you!
And needs to smile, and say I missed you too…
А human being needs a house and a garden,
Two windows, and old doors.
And needs to hear: — I am so happy for you
And answer: — Oh, well, how I believe you!
We need the dawn… and a quiet knock on the windows.
And a faithful dog that will brighten up our evenings
And just to hear: — What’s wrong with you, buddy?
And answer: — I want to straighten my shoulders.
So that our feelings are not reduced to zero,
And those who are far away have become closer and closer.
And just to hear: — I love you.
And answer: — And I love you even more.

The End


А человеку нужен крепкий чай…
А не меха, какие подороже.
И просто слышать: — Как же я скучал!
И улыбаться: — Я скучала тоже…
А человеку нужен дом и сад,
И два окна, и старенькие двери.
И просто слышать: — Как тебе я рад!
И отвечать: — Ах, как тебе я верю!
Нужна заря… И в окна тихий стук.
И верный пес, который скрасит вечер.
И просто слышать: — Что с тобою, Друг?
И отвечать: — Хочу расправить плечи.
Чтоб наши чувства — не свели к нулю,
И, кто далек — стал ближе и роднее.
И просто слышать: — Я тебя люблю.
И отвечать: — А я тебя — сильнее!
