You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Мне снились роскошные, красные розы, 
И в душу их сладкий лился аромат... 
- То страсти счастливой волшебные грезы, 
Что цвет свой недолгий так пышно дарят! 

Мне снились бездушные, желтые розы, 
Я в гневе цветы их на части рвала... 
- То ревности были безумной угрозы, 
Что часто нам душу терзала и жгла! 

Мне снились печальные, белые розы, 
И на землю падали их лепестки... 
- То были по мертвой любви твоей слезы, 
Безмолвные слезы надгробной тоски! 

Older spelling: "роскошныя, красныя"
