‘What does a man approach me with…’ (Nadezhda Yarygina)

What does a man approach me with?
With a map of the starry heavens, with a bouquet of cinquefoil,
With a requesto to mend his jeans, with a quill pen behind the ear,
With a laurel wreath over the ear, with a tame Apollo butterfly,
And also simply…with a greeting.

Надежда Ярыгина

С чем ходит ко мне мужчина?
С картою звездного неба, с букетом курильского чая,
С просьбой заштопать джинсы, с гусиным пером за ухом,
С лавровым венцом над ухом, с ручным мотыльком-аполлоном,
А то и просто — с приветом.
