Poem: What is Happening in the World?

Translation from Russian of poem by Yuriy Levitanskii – Dialog next to a Christmas Tree

What is happening in the world?

It’s just another winter…  

Just another winter?….
Is that what you think?

Yes, I do!
That’s what my calendar tells me…

Ok… what will happen next?

April will come…

Are you sure that April will come?

Yes, I’m sure!
I’ve heard a bird singing… that’s a good sign that April will come…

But what should we do?

We should live our lives!!
Get our summer dresses and hats ready!

Do you think we’ll get to wear them?

I think we should get them ready…
We should try our summer dresses on today!!!

… Because there’s no plan B and there’s no planet B…

Please put on your summer dress 👗!.!..
Give me your hand…
Dance 💃🏻 with me… my beautiful partner…

Should we wear masks 😷?

We don’t really need masks 🎭!!!

The music is playing… give me your hand…

And 1-2-3… 1-2-3… 1-2-3…
