My first poem in English was a translation of my own poem from Russian. Then I began translating Russian romances into English. I used to study in a vocal studio and took part in many concerts. Russian romances were the largest part of my repertoire. I was eager to know how they would sound in English and was happy to get my friends comments telling me that they were beautiful. That was the start. I’ve been writing poetry for about four years. Today I have more than 400 of them. I am so much thankful to my friends, poets from English speaking countries. They say: You become better and better. It certainly flatters and inspires me not only to write more but really to write better. Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to write more and better. I am so much grateful to all those who showed me the way to the beauty of a real poetry. They are: Dave Dunn (Rhumour) from the United Kingdom, who has published the collection of his best poems “Rhumour Has It”, Rowan Blair Colver, an artist, a song writer, a poet. He has already published 6 books of his poetry. Carol Rader is from the United States of America. She is so beautiful, her poetry is so nice and wise. And… I am so proud to be their friend.

MY WISHES I want to live, I want to love, I want to value someone, I want to be just brave enough to tell how much I love you. I want to value all my friends, to give them love and joy, I want to visit merry lands where no one is annoyed. I want to live, I want to fly, in all to be the best, and may be one day go as high as to the alluring Everest. I want to have a magic wish and always to be young, I want to catch a goldfish and learn her mother-tongue. I want to ask it for the wings and never let me cry, and to avoid all crappy things, to love until I die. I want to know victories, don't want to know troubles, don't want to know miseries, to live with no doubles. I want to live and be myself, to learn another culture, to meet one day with kind elf and sing the songs of nature. Those are my wishes told above but the main one is certainly love. I'll try to manage with them all with the God's help and his control. SUMMER, AUTUMN, WINTER, SPRING I like the warmth of rains in summer time. It's so nice and pleasant in any clime. I like the golden autumn when it dances blues, When I let my imagination loose. I like the whiteness of the snow when winter comes I don't feel any cold when I am in your arms. But when the blossom of the spring comes I'll overcome the oceans, mountains and seas And on the wings of love I'll fly to you For only one reason - to tell you: I LOVE YOU! OUR LIFE Our life is not always easy Sometimes it rains hard But with every coming year You become wiser and smart. You value your past, You take care of present. The time goes fast Some things you still haven't. With the coming years You start to compare And it finally appears Not everything was fair. When you were younger The sun was warmer, The stars were brighter, The road seemed longer. But you know exactly After winter comes spring, You'll have new feelings, You'll have new wings.
