To be born Russian, to remain Russian
And save this happiness,
When and wherever to wander–
Such as grandfathers ,to lay down in earth.
I have been looking at this over for some time today with a lot of awe. I lived in a cold climate for my first 20 years and then moved and did not see a winter or even a fall for the next 35. last year was the first time I saw snow in decades.I like cold weather, but I dont think I would come up after the first immersion.
The last three winters in central Russia was quite warm.These months without snow were really very unplesant.
