The constellations within the sky stood steeply on their heads, all of the stars had made an about-tum, however the moon, buried below the featherbed of clouds that have been lit via its unseen presence, appeared nonetheless to have sooner than her an unending trip and, absorbed in her advanced heavenly methods, didn't reflect on sunrise. a number of horse-drawn cabs loomed black on the street, part damaged and unfastened jointed like crippled, sleeping crabs or cockroaches. A motive force leaned down in the direction of me from his excessive field. He had a small crimson kindly face. ' we could pass, grasp? ' he requested. The cab shook in all of the joints and ligatures of its many­ limbed physique and made a begin on its gentle wheels. yet who might entrust oneself on one of these evening to the whims of an unpre­ dictable cabby? Amidst the press of the axles, amidst the thud of the field and the roof, i couldn't accept as true with him on my vacation spot. He nodded indul­ lightly at every little thing I stated and sang to himself. We drove in a circle round the urban. In entrance of an resort stood a bunch of cabbies who waved pleasant palms to him .

The air pulsated with a mystery spring, with the matchless purity of snow and violets. We entered a hilly panorama. The strains of hills, bristling with the naked spikes of timber, rose like sighs of bliss. I observed on those satisfied slopes teams of wanderers, amassing one of the moss and the trees the fallen stars which now have been damp from snow. the line turned steep, the pony started to slip on it and pulled the creaking cab simply with an attempt. i used to be satisfied. My lungs soaked up the comfortable spring within the air, the freshness of snow and stars. ahead of the horse's breast the rampart of white snowy foam grew greater and better, and it could possibly rarely battle through that natural clean mass.
