I never knew – Korney Chukovsky

I never knew,
what's so much fun being an old man.
Every day my thoughts
brighter and brighter.
Near dear Pushkin,
here on autumn Tverskoy,
I am with parting greed
I look at children for a long time.
AND, tired, old,
amuses me
Their eternal running and fuss.
Why should we live
On this planet,
In the cycle
bloody centuries,
If not for them, not these
Big-eyed, sonorous children ...
