    Grammatically speaking, it applies to men (pl.), but people use it nowadays to greet everyone, man, men, woman or women.
    "С чий очи сънувам, чий е този лик обречен?
    Смъртен глас ми се причува и отеква с вик далечен
    Как да зърна да погледна, чуждий образ да прегърна,
    на лицето ми студено грях в надежда да превърна.."
