- Tell, what the fire you was glad Rasul Gamzatov

* * *
- Tell, what the fire you was glad
To burn you in the youth, the brother?
- By the love to the woman!

- What, not having avoided a losses,
You burn with the fire and now?
-By the love to the woman!

- What, answer, you wish henceforth
By the fire for the life to burn?
- By the love to the woman!

- Than you value a hundred times
Above a glory and an awards?
-By the love of the woman!

- Than has been overthrown, as a stream,
And you are uplifted, how do a dagger?
-By the love of the woman!

- With what again,
As a fate go contradict,
You will divide not into the term the love?
- With the love of the woman!

- And with what, the mad person,
Then your century will terminate?
- With the love of the woman!

- Скажи, каким огнем был рад
Гореть ты в молодости, брат?
- Любовью к женщине!

- Каким, не избежав потерь,
Горишь огнем ты и теперь?
- Любовью к женщине!

- Каким, ответь, желаешь впредь
Огнем пожизненно гореть?
- Любовью к женщине!

- Чем дорожишь ты во сто крат
Превыше славы и наград?
- Любовью женщины!

- Чем был низвергнут, как поток,
И вознесен ты, как клинок?
- Любовью женщины!

- С чем вновь,
как рок ни прекословь,
Разделишь не на срок любовь?
- С любовью женщины!

- А с чем, безумный человек,
Тогда окончится твой век?
- С любовью женщины!
