Мне ли, молодцу

Language: Russian (Русский)

Мне ли, молодцу разудалому,
Зиму - зимскую жить за печкою?
Мне ль поля пахать? Мне ль траву косить?
Затоплять овин? Молотить овес? Мне ли, молодцу?
Если б молодцу ночь да добрый конь,
Да булатный нож, да темны, темны леса!
Снаряжу коня, наточу булат,
Затяну чекмень, полечу в леса;
Стану в тех лесах вольной волей жить,
Удалой башкой в околотке слыть.
