I was thirteenth passed.
I pass the lambs behind the village.
Is it so the little girl sowed
How was it to me?
I'm so good
Already called for a share
And I'm in weed
...I do not know,
What a little to me
What a lot of fun it was.
Lamb seemed to have fun!
And the sun was warm, not hell!
... the sky is pale
And ... girl
At the very road
Not far from me
Ploshbon chose
Yes, I heard ...
Came, congratulated
Rubbed ... kissed ...
Like the sun sowed
It's like everything in the world has become
My ... lawns, groves, gardens! ...
