Lullabies, 2008, 9 лет


The Sun is sleeping,
Clouds are weeping.
My child is going to bed,
And put down his tired head.
Sleep, oh sleep, my baby dear,
Now you know your mum is near.

Rock in the cradle, my baby, at night,
Be in the morning handsome and bright,
Have a good slumber
And magic dreams in great number.

Hush-a-bye,
Don’t you cry,
Down you lie,
And sleeping you try.
Hush-a-bye, hush-a-bye.

Leap into bed,
Put down your head,
Sleep, oh sleep,
Don’t you weep,
Close your eyes,
In the morning you’ll rise.

Mummy is singing,
Daddy is ringing,
Brother is almost asleep
Counting little white sheep.
‘Lullaby, lullaby’,
Sings the mum.
Sleep, little baby, without alarm.

Mum is lying on the bed,
She is resting her head.
Pussy is nearby creeping
And then suddenly leaping.
She curls around Mum’s tired head
Because she was tastily fed.
Leaves are falling behind the window,
Yellow is the meadow.
Tired is Mum’s head,
It’s time to go to bed.

Mummy is rocking,
Daddy is talking
And I am а Sleepy Head.
I want to go to bed.
I’ll make my bed
And put down my head.
And sleep till morning light.

Everyone at home is snoring,
For me it is so boring.
The sun set down,
The sky is in a dark gown,
The stars light and bright
Shining in the night.

Different New Years, 10 лет, 2009

Are New Years for all the same?
Some presents like a photo frame,
New sock to wear…
But stop. Who’s there?

It’s snowing, blowing and a kitten
Is playing with his present, a mitten.
No tasty food, no drink,
Just a little mitten which is pink.

Now spy the end of the street
Where standing in the snow so neat
Is a kennel for a dog,
Which is hidden in the fog.

The dog’s master is rich.
But which present will he give it? Which?
From the table some scraps of food.
But for the dog it is quite good!

The camels in the zoo
Have their New Year, too.
Some thistles which are green,
The cage is shining clean.

Farm animals have their New Year.
Hens run across the yard with fear.
And running after them with the knife
Is the farmer’s wife.

She wants to kill a hen
And to make a pilau of it then.
As soon as pigs hear farmers talk
They shiver with fear to be pork.

Squirrels’ New Year is better
At this time they get fatter and fatter.
They have their own store
And when they want they’ll eat more.

To children’s New Year come relations,
They bring new fir-tree decorations.
For little ones they’ll bring a sleigh,
Some clothes and some toys to play.

The fir-tree is in tinsels, with glass balls,
Hanging on top are cardboard dolls.
There are many candies, toffees sweet
Which all the children long to eat.

To all homes New Year,
As you see, brings cheer.

A Poem About Firemen, 2009, 10 лет


If there is a fire,
Everyone requires
To dial “01”
It is not a game, it is not fun.

They drive a fire engine
To the burning region.
They will come as light
To have a serious fight.

They wear fireproof suits
And black rubber boots.
They use a gas mask
For a serious task.

Even animals will be rescued,
Don’t worry they’ll not forget you.
They will put out the fire
The result you’ll admire.

A planet of heroes there would be
If everyone could be
A FIREMAN!

Лимерики, 2010, 10 лет


There was a Young Lady of Wales
Who got the habit of nibbling her nails.
She nibbled some off
And started to cough.
That careless Lady of Wales.

There was an Old Man of Great Britain
Who dreamt of executing a kitten.
He caught it at night
After a serious fight.
That cruel Man of Great Britain.

There was a Young Girl in the Theatre
A bear is fat but she was fatter.
She played a play
And went away.
And she ate all the buns in the theatre.

There was an Old Man from Loverstics
Who went to do gymnastics.
He fell from the bars
And saw many stars.
That foolish Man from Loverstics.

Once there was a Universe
Which was very blue, of course.
And an alive red bun.
My dear, what a fun
To live in that Universe!

There was a young lady of Russia
Who said: ‘My name is Masha.’
Masha didn’t have a passport
And she didn’t use any transport.
What a cheeky young lady of Russia.

There was a Tiger in the zoo.
He did not know what to do.
He climbed up the bars
And fell down with stars.
That awkward Tiger from the zoo.

There was an Old Man of New York
Who was very suspicious of pork.
He ate it at night
And woke up with a fright.
That forgetful Old Man of New York.

There was an Old Man of the West
Who hit himself hard in the chest.
He sobbed at the moon
And recovered in June.
That awkward Old Man of the West.

My bear


Who has thrown my teddy bear?
Who has torn its paw?
No, it is not fair.
But I will play with him more.

My horse

I love my horse.
I comb its mane.
It doesn’t need to be forced,
It is tame.

Four seasons, May 2010, 11 years


In our world there are four seasons
And everyone has his own reason
To like them or dislike.

In autumn children go to school
It isn’t warm at all, it’s cool.
The air is fog-like.

In winter the ground is covered with snow
Everything is in white glow.
The nature is asleep.

We manage to do some winter sport
Though the days are very short.
The blizzards often sweep.

In spring plants start to grow.
Melted waters start to flow.
Sunny days have come.

In summer days are very hot
And we swim in the sea a lot.
How happy we become!

Загадки, 8 лет

  • Солнце с белыми лучами растет на поляне. (ромашка)
  • Рыжая шкурка, а во рту – курка. (лиска)
  • Красненькая птичка,
    Ростом невеличка.
    Насекомых ловит ловко,
    А зовется – … (мухоловка)

    Игольница на спинке яблочки несет.
    Игольница с иголками лапками шуршит,

Далекая планета, 9 лет


На одной далекой планете
Слон прочитал в газете,
Что с неба падают искринки,
А в костре горят снежинки.
Зебра читала в газете,
Что где-то на дальней планете.
Травка синяя есть
Да столько, что не счесть.
И все на далекой планете
Читали в своей газете,
Что есть планета Земля
И треугольная она.

Легенда о реке Катунь, 14 лет


Жил на Алтае хан могучий
С прекрасной дочерью своей.
Её он запер в замок отчий
На веки, до скончанья дней.
Но птицы пролетали мимо
И пели о любви иной.
О той любви, что парень Бия
Питал к ней, страсти неземной.
И вот Катунь, она ж дочь хана,
Сбежать решила от отца.
Встав до рассвета утром рано,
Бежала, не покрыв лица.
Проснувшись, хан хватился дочки,
И мчатся воины за ней.
Но та уж скачет через кочки,
Петляет ловко меж камней.
И оторвавшись от погони
К красавцу Бию та пришла.
И уходя ладонь в ладони,
Свою любовь она нашла.
Не зря пришла издалека –
Теперь они ведь Обь река.
