Smart home proposal

The elegant house in my understanding is, first of all, the house of summer type. It should have beautiful kinds from the windows, representing fine landscapes. It should have on the average two floors both spacious balconies and terraces. The spacious rooms arranged by the newest technologies, comfortable and beautiful furniture are necessary, all should be so that everywhere it would be possible to have a rest easy. Presence of the spacious ladders, even one house cinema and graceful and, somewhat, an original interior is necessary. Into this concept enter: bright, but curtains not allocated from the general interior at windows, greater carpets with skilful patterns. The court yard around of a court yard should be excellently equipped: a lawn пострижен, also many colors are planted.

Traces
Tell me, when you visit homes
Luxurious or bare,
Entering through portals wide
Or up a narrow stair,
Listening to music
Conjured from the piano keys,
Answering your hosts` polite inquiries,
Tell me, please,
Do you leave a trace they wipe
From the parquet floor?
Do you hosts exchange a glance
As you close the door?
Or are they glad that you have been
And sad that you depart?
Do you leave a trace unseen
To cherish in the heart?
1945

Leonid Martynov

Leonid Martynov (1905-1980)

Leonid Martynov is one of the most popular Soviet and Russian poets of the older generation. He was born in the family of a railway engineer in Omsk.
“Richness of invention, free flow of expression and bold transitions from drama to irony lend perennial charm to poems of his which are now anthology favourites,”- said literary critic Lev Ozerov.

Sorrow

Midnight. Strange station lights.
And sorrow that is true.
It`s now I realize
How much I fear for you.

With grief like this at heart
We find fresh water plane,
The sweetest apples – tart,
Tobacco smoke – a bane.

And like a chill steel knife
That strikes between the ribs
Is thinking you may die
Or be an invalid.
1925
