Poems and Songs on Vladimir Vysotsky.

The Poet’s dead!—a slave to honor...

The Poet’s dead!—a slave to honor...
It’s happed again in such a way!
But far and wide it’s been long known
That short is the Russian poets’ stay.

At present they respect Vysotsky,
And say he was a gifted man...
Give up your wiles! The Lord’s voice was he—
A splendid poet and a Man.
