If a landing was like snow



If a landing was like snow, -
Don’t ever rush to walk.
If a woman tells you “no” -
It means she wants to talk.

A gentleman will always
Let a woman go-ahead
It’s one of many ways
Enjoy with her behind.

Sometimes the girl could ask:
Why starring you at me?
And answer simple tasks
It wasn’t a piece of me.

The answer is only one,
You shouldn’t expect another.
It was my future son,
That’s looking for his mother.

Leonid Rozumenko

Someone in your domain asks me to send a letter about myself. My pleasure - favorite topic. Who am I? Can’t keep a secret - athletic, open-minded, and generous, with a wide scope, love for women, good company. With love for science and to write something everlasting, which isn’t computer programming anymore. I was born in gorgeous Kyiv (Ukraine) more than 35 years ago, lived in the USA for longer than 4 years and my language is still in progress. My poetry is also a colorful picture of the unseeing battle between “yours truly” and English grammar. My Ukrainian or Russian accent has two unreliable reasons – it’s “for fun” and “hard to get rid of”. The meaning of my last name “Rozumenko” in Ukrainian is very close to “jaba-jaba a dada” in “Crocodile Dundee II”. I have several other weaknesses but I introduce them only to my closest friends. Yours truly, Leo Rozumenko more…
