Margaritki (1916) Op.38 no.3


O, posmotri! kak mnogo margaritok —
I tam, i tut...
Oni cvetut; ikh mnogo; ikh izbytok;
Oni cvetut.
Ikh lepestki trjokhgrannye — kak kryl'ja,
Kak belyj shjolk...
Vy — leta moshch'! Vy — radost' izobil'ja!
Vy — svetlyj polk!
Gotov', zemlja, cvetam iz ros napitok,
Daj sok steblju...
O, devushki! o, zvezdy margaritok!
Ja vas ljublju...


Just look! See how many daisies there are
Here and there…
They are in flower, so many of them, in abundance.
They are in flower.
Their three-faceted petals are like wings,
Like white silk.
They are the summer’s might, the joy of plenty,
A radiant army!
Prepare, oh earth, a drink of dew drops,
To refresh the flowers’ stems…
Oh maidens fair! Oh little daisy starlets!
How I love you!
