Walk on squares Dushanbe.

“It seemed that on the night of December, April fell from the heights,
He covered the valley with a carpet of flowers and damp dust - the firmament.
Washed by the tears of the clouds, the gardens are dressed in bright silk,
And the spring wind brings us the spicy amber aroma"
