Alfred Edward Chalon artist (Chalon Alfred Edward), watercolor, 1838


Your krasoyu shine Mladost
You're in love hearts given,
Bright, captivating, as joy,
And how thoughtful, gentle.
In the face of the beautiful. snow-white
And scarlet roses on her cheeks -
Everywhere all breathe a gentle heart.
It is in the sight of the blue,
It is a smile on his lips;
And, as a ruddy dawn
Sun shine flame jet
Life throws to heaven -
So pure angelic soul
Illuminated by your beauty ...

I.I.Kozlov (E.M.Zavadovskoy)
