Commentary to the poem “I Write to You”.
Here comes to mind Rudyard Kipling’s poem “I have eaten your bread and salt...”:
I have eaten your bread and salt.
Was there aught that I did not share
I have written the tale of our life
Vladimir Vysotsky said that if you throw on one scale all his activities in the theater, in the cinema and on the radio, and add his concerts to it, and place on the other scale only his work on creating songs, the second scale will outweigh.
The poem was written in 1972.
