Here you will find the Poem Little World of poet Marina Ivanova Tsvetaeva

Little World

Children - are staring of eyes so frightful, 
 Mischievous legs on a wooden floor, 
 Children - is sun in the gloomy motives, 
 Hypotheses' of happy sciences world. 

 Eternal disorder in the ring's gold, 
 Tender word's whispers in semi-sleep, 
 On the wall in a cozy child's room, the dreaming 
 Peaceful pictures of birds and sheep. 

 Children - is evening, evening on the couch, 
 In the fog, through the window, glimmer street lamps, 
 A measured voice of the tale of King Saltan, 
 Mermaid-sisters of seas from tales. 

 Children - is rest, brief moment of respite, 
 A trembling vow before God's eyes, 
 Children - are the world's tender riddles, 
 Where in the riddle the answer hides!
