Poems and Songs on Vladimir Vysotsky.

Commentary to the song “On Volodya Vysotsky”.

It is pertinent to recall here Rudyard Kipling’s poem “The Appeal”:

If I have given you delight

By aught that I have done,

Let me lie quiet in that night

Which shall be yours anon:

And for the little, little span

The dead are borne in mind,

Seek not to question other than

The books I leave behind.

This song is dedicated to Vladimir Vysotsky’s wife Marina Vladimirovna Polyakova (Marina Vladi).
