"The snow below the bluish skies,
Like a majestic carpet lies,
And in the light of day it shimmers.
The woods are dusky. Through the frost
The greenish fir-trees are exposed;
And under ice, a river glitters."
- A. Pushkin
I also enjoyed the stamps! They are showing a viaduct and the river 'Matsesta', I think. My Russian has become a bit rusty, I fear.
