Russian Dolls

Can you imagine live matrushkas!
I see them walking
Singing, dancing, gliding...
In the streets of Moscow

Some are huge, heavy and tall
Simply elephantine
Some are little, slim and pretty

Hidden from the eagles' gaze

They come out, be it day or night
Dressed in the latest fashion
Enveloped in best cosmetics
In many hues and colors

They can be pricey
They can be priceless
They can steal hearts with ease
They can even make one kneel
down at one's knees

Matrushkas are not only grand or small
They come in all shapes, sizes and forms
Whatever one says about their beauty
Matrushkas are intelligent, hardworking and pretty!
