Treasure Island

Mikhail Alekseevich Kuzmin

(1872 - 1936 / Russia)

We Were Four Sisters


We were four sisters, four sisters were we,
All four of us loved, but had different "becauses:"
One loved because father and mother told her to,
another loved because her lover was rich,
the third loved because he was a famous artist,
and I loved because I fell in love.

We were four sisters, four sisters were we,
All four of us wished, but had different wishes:
one wished to raise children and cook oatmeal,
another wished to wear a new dress every day,
the third wished everyone would talk about her,
and I wished to love and be loved.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
