    poems

    Can anyone make sense of the following two poems ?

    Poem 1:
    Ко мне мой сторый друг не ходит,
    А ходят в праздной суете
    Разнообразные не те ...

    Совсем не та ко мне приходит,
    Мне руки на плечи кладёт,
    И у другой меня крадёт.

    Poem 2:
    Девочка плачет - шарик улетел.
    Её утешают, а шарик летит.
    Девушка плачет - жениха всё нет.
    Её утешают, а шарик летит.
    Женщина плачет - муж ушёл к другой.
    Её утешают, а шарик летит.

    The literal translation from translate.google.com does not make much sense.

    To me, my friend's story does not go,
    And go to idle vanity
    Various not the same ...

    Not one comes to me,
    I put his hands on the shoulders,
    I steal from another menu.

    A girl cries - the ball left.
    Her consolation, the ball flies.
    The girl crying - all no groom.
    Her consolation, the ball flies.
    A woman cries - the husband went to another.
    Her consolation, the ball flies.

    Quite a wrong 'she' comes to me,
    And puts the hands on my shoulders,
    And steals me from another 'she'.

    My old friend doesn't visit me.
    Istead 'the wrong ones' of all sorts visit me
    in idle vanity.


    Poem 2:
    Девочка плачет - шарик улетел.
    Её утешают, а шарик летит.
    Девушка плачет - жениха всё нет.
    Её утешают, а шарик летит.

    A little girl cries her balloon has flown away
    She is consoled but the balloon still flies away.
    A maiden (well, a grown girl) cries - there's no fiance for her
    She is consoled but the balloon still flies away.
    A woman cries - her husband has left her for another one (a woman)
    She is consoled but the balloon still flies away.
    Send me a PM if you need me.
