Благословляю вас, леса

Language: Russian

Благословляю вас, леса, долины, нивы, горы, воды,
Благословляю я свободу и голубые небеса!

И посох мой благословляю, и эту бедную суму,
И степь от краю и до краю,
и солнца свет, и ночи тьму,

И одинокую тропинку, по коей, ниший, я иду,
И в поле каждую былинку, 
и в небе каждую звезду!

О, если б мог всю жизнь смешать я,
Всю душу вместе с вами слить,
О, если б мог в мои объятья
я вас, враги, друзья, и братья,
И всю природу в мои объятья заключить!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
