Anton Pavloviç Çexov "Yaylaqçılar'' (Hekayə)

Təzəcə evlənmiş ər-arvad bağ dayanacağının platformasında var-gəl edirdi. Kişi qadının belini qucaqlamışdı, qadınsa ona sığınmışdı, onların hər ikisi xoşbəxt idi. Bulud laylarının arxasından ay onlara baxırdı, qaşqabağını tökmüşdü: elə bil özünün darıxdırıcı, lazımsız bakirəliyindən dilxor olurdu, xəcalət çəkirdi. 740 more words
