Inscriptions

Inscribed on the train: Bucharest-Odessa. A train passes at the frontier, The wheels clatter merrily. Whose joyful faces are Looking out from the train’s windows? They are our sisters, our brothers: Our army rescued them, Our maternal fatherland has taken them, Into her wide embraces. The end of agonizing captivity! Greetings to you, free fields! Be forever blessed, Holy Russian land!
