    It's very poetic and very much irregular.

    There is not such word as "орамив", poet (whose poems are those? I don't know out of my head and I'm too lazy to google it. Is it Маяковский?) invented it himself from the word "рама" or "рамка" (frame). In this context this word means "put in a frame".

    On a second thought, I'm probably wrong about poet inventing this word himself. It's probably possible to say "орамить картину".

    "Pеемой" is an artificial passive form of verb "реять". Multitran gives following: "soar; fly; toss; flaunt" for "реять". I'd think that "fly" as "fly the flag" is adequate here. The form "реемой" means "is been flown" here. At least that's how I see it.

    ОрАмить - to frame over; to set in a frame ( вставлять в раму )

    2) "рЕемой" - soaring

    3)

    I wish I watched you standing at a lathe.
    As for poems, it's boondoggle
    As to work, you don't have the guts. or you're too (piss-)weak

    Ok, one more:

    "здрасите" ? Is it a salutation?



    "А на что мне это все?
    Как собаке - здрасите!"

    PS: Yes, it is Mayakovsky, from the poems: ИСПАНИЯ and ПОЭТ РАБОЧИЙ.

    "здрасите" - an imitation of "здравствуйте".

    "А на что мне это все?
    Как собаке - здрасите!"

    What do I need it all for?
    Like a dog needs a "Hullo-o-w!"
