The number of steps I scaled was seven. When I counted, they proved to be eight. I’d like to be born and grow up again, I’d like to be seventeen years old again. My dear relatives, come to visit me, I have nothing special to offer you, but I have some bread. My friend, let us climb a hill, take your mandolin, we will cry, join hands and go apart.
