Poems and Songs on Vladimir Vysotsky.
Written by Anonymous.
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! God’s crier was he —
A splendid poet and a Man.
