Grapes ripen in the garden,
Hanging brushes amber.
Soon again whirl the leaves,
Carrying away the memory of last summer.
Spider web touching the face,
Indian summer will remind you of the main:
Winter is lurking at the porch,
And the snowflakes whirling in a smooth
Completed, will summarize the case,
And last year's achievements.
Grapes-drops of heat,
(V. Komina, " Grapes")
