Children to bed early will fall Poem by Marshak for children

Children to bed early will fall
In the last day of December,
And will Wake up a year older than
On the first day of the calendar.

The year will begin with silence,
Unfamiliar with previous winters:
The noise per frame double
Barely detect.

But the guys calling out
Winter day through the ice glass
A refreshing cold
From the cozy heat.

A kind word we will include
Year old care,
Starting early in the morning
A new day and a new year!
