Children of our yard



"Children of our court,
Your wings are strong
And yesterday's game
Tomorrow will be true. ”
Samuel Marshak


Yard Boyhood brotherhood. The basics of honor. Soviet childhood would have been unthinkable without courtyard friendship and special rules of behavior. At one time, I noticed one entertaining detail - quite a lot (although not all!) Liberal figures declared their hatred for “soviet friendship”, for yard kids, who were just waiting to kick a good violin boy (or book). Like, even then began mutual alienation. The division into "smart" and - "cattle", despite the fact that small snobs always turned out to be divided, while the proletarian shoots found 1001 a reason to rally. It was annoying. It is annoying so far.

The opposition gentlemen are hardly exaggerating when they say that their elemental and childish anti-Sovietism originated at a tender age, in the sandbox, in the process of ill-fated socialization. Alas, they already had the reputation of strangers - they were not accepted by that very Leningrad street. Or Moscow, Voronezh, Tyumen ... Of course, no one thrashed anyone for points and a violin, for school fives and a love for slinging. The hatred of the court fell upon the arrogant and mean. On those who betrayed and betrayed. Those who complained to the mother or grandmother, who always sat near the entrance.

Look - all our youth literature devoted to Soviet beingness, one way or another, concerned the courtyard, street environment. Even if they were fairy tales, like "Old Man Hottabych." This is exactly the story, the story of Nikolay Nosov, Yuri Nagibin, Vladislav Krapivin, the verses of Agnia Barto, Sergey Mikhalkov and Samuel Marshak, but since we started talking about St. Petersburg boys, Radiy Pogodin with his Keshka, Mishka, Tolik and “ Brick Islands. And now a closed, arrogant - seemingly - boy who always wanders past moves into their house. He is amused. Then - becomes the object of hatred. And now - the moment of truth. "- Before the first blood or the whole force? “With all my strength,” said Sima, not too loudly, but very strongly. This meant that he agreed to fight until the end, while his hands were raised, while his fingers clenched into a fist. It doesn't matter here whether you are bleeding from your nose or not. Defeated is the one who says: stop, give up ... ". Further we learn that Sima-Semaphore is not at all a coward, and not a rag, but a worthy boy. Own Accepted.

Approximately the same situation is created by Vladislav Krapivin in “Pigeon in Yellow Glade”. So, we have a baby musician in front of us, a baby gift. Bunny goody. He is cited as an example to all unlucky and playful children: “Such boys, probably, exist on purpose in nature to please aunts and grandmothers. He strides a clean one, drags a violin in a case, looks at his feet so that he does not scratch his lacquered shoes. Combed, in a yellow suit, on the neck even a bow is also bright yellow, with black peas. The arrows are pressed on the trousers ... ”And this time the young intellectual showed himself - he showed that he is not afraid of a fight. If Pogodin painted precisely Petersburg children, then Krapivin is the singer of the Russian province with its original, ancient towns. But, as we see, the conflict is still the same.

Moscow writer Yuri Nagibin in his "Chistoprudnom" cycle displays the image of Pavlik - a noble friend. In their company, he always played the role of Athos: “I did not feel in myself that nobility that constitutes the main feature of Athos, which my friend Pavlik fully possessed”. Playing musketeers, the boys eventually defeat the local rowdy who terrorized the whole quarter. And, as it should be, they beat the first: “My first blow again opened the locks in his snub nose. Another blow - and, kalyabaya hands on the cobblestone, Lyalik spun round on the pavement. " In 1941, all these boys — bad and glorious, obedient and mischievous — went to the front. "Seryozhka with Malaya Bronnaya and Vitka with Mokhovaya". They learned to be loyal and brave still there, in the courtyard, when they had to fight "wall to wall" with the local punks. At one time, I happened to hear the phrase that yesterday's high school student won a war graduate of the 1930 school of Stalin. All this is true, however, teachers and pioneers - this is half the battle. They taught theories, but the "practice" was comprehended in street battles and yard companies. There did not forgive pettiness and lies. Because in the near future it was this and it was read, it was felt: “Ah, the war, what did you do, mean: our yards became quiet, our boys raised their heads - they matured until then ...”

Marshak has the following lines: “Children of our yard, you are its owners, / Chapaev’s cavalry is playing in the yard”. The meaning of the verses is simple - today we play, and tomorrow we will fight and build. "The children of our yard, sailors, pilots, / And the time of military work will come for you." By the way, this thing of Marshak is significant and noteworthy from the point of view. historical, social point of view. Firstly, we are shown children from the elite quarter. The author immediately brings us up to date: “Many heroes live in the yard. / But the guys recognize the rule as follows: / You are proud of your father, a noble citizen, / But be a good fellow yourself, And not just your son. ” However, in almost any “privileged” house, besides heroes and big bosses, ordinary people also lived - though the latter lived in communal apartments, while the “Stalinist Falcons”, of course, had a separate living space.

But the community partnership was based on different criteria - few people were worried about family status. Material values ​​- even more so. To be the son of a military commander is not so much an honor as an additional duty, and if you are a scumbag, a snitch and a rokhla, you will be beaten. Or - humiliatingly ignore. The time of pompous "majors" with their clothes, "wheelbarrows" and father's merit has not yet come, and the guys were friends with those who were brave, inventive, and interesting in communication. Curiously, what are the kids from the "cool" house doing? Besides the fact that they are playing Chapaev’s cavalry ... “Who built a bridge across the ditch in the courtyard, / Bridge on the Volga, on the Dnieper, will build for glory. You are preparing to build Dneprostroi in the game. / You grow up in the yard where the heroes live. ” That is, the yard itself is the starting point, and not just a place for playing, fighting, hustling and climbing roofs. "Children of our yard, Chkalovsky house, / Yesterday you flew away from the airfield." Young heroes of our books never played just like that - they either learned something, or opposed the evil in the face of a juvenile urki, or - they plotted something ambitious, like escaping to the North Pole.

Authors of children's stories, portraying courtyard customs, taught life. Here, for example, the famous story of Nikolai Nosov “Fantazery”. At first it seems that the thing is about nothing: the boys are fooling around and inventing fables. But the moment of truth comes when the third appears. This one is “reasonable”, does not like to compose and does not know how, which is typical. Everything about the case. Why wander into the void when you can lie with profit? "And here. Last night, mom and dad left, and Ira and I stayed at home. Ira went to bed, and I climbed into the buffet and ate half a jar of jam. Then I think: no matter how I get it. Took Irka lips jam smeared. Mom came: "Who ate the jam?" I say: "Ira." Mom looked, and she has all her lips in jam. This morning she got from her mother, and my mother gave me more jam. That’s good. ” Summary: “Go away! We don’t want to sit on the bench with you. ” And then the guys meet that very tearful Ira and treat her with ice cream. The moral is straightforward: you can’t even sit next to the scoundrels, not to listen to their stories. The trick was condemned. The word "profit" sounded like a curse. Benefit was considered comme il fot only in one case - when it was nationwide.

Yard rejected and mama's sons. In the stories of Yuri Sotnik this motif is often played up. The protagonist is a purely homely boy who is cared for and courted by parents. He is not a moral monster and not a snitch. He just hasn't tried to be independent yet. The boy’s suffering is further aggravated by the fact that the girl Aglaia, his impossible dream, despises his penny. “Aglaya was right there in the yard. She jumped on one leg, pushing a pebble in front of her, heard the whole humiliating conversation between my father and my mother and inserted from time to time, without addressing anyone: - Do! Since six years I have been alone at home, and that’s nothing! ”

Tellingly, the courtyard - already as a meeting place, fellowship and meeting - was often depicted in youth fiction. A typical example is the early things of Vasily Aksyonov. “Under the window is whistling. A friend and classmate of my Dima, Alik Kramer, is walking around the yard. I can see from above his hair, separated from the side by a string of parting, glasses, a festival shawl around his neck and bony shoulders covered with a jumper. Dimka appears. He is wearing an evening suit and bow tie. Dressed in the same way, the bruiser-basketball player Yurka Popov, the son of our house manager, fits. The company smokes. I remember very well how pleasant it is to smoke when you finally win this right. And the guys, you see, enjoy lighting a cigarette in front of the whole house. But they are very restrained, not verbose, like true dandies. ” Aksenovsky boys are yesterday's boys from the poems of Marshak and the stories of Nosov. They matured, as, incidentally, their funny classmates prettier, turning from girls with pigtails into spectacular young ladies: “Galina Bodrova, the charming girl of modern design, fits on heels with pinks. I really like Galinka. Everything brightens around when it appears. In my opinion, even Dimkin’s physiognomy brightens when Galya appears. Once they fought here, under these windows. ” The place of yesterday's games, fights and children's meanings turns into a starting point - they leave from here to return by another person. The yard becomes cramped. And the first love - also come from here. “He will grow up, will become famous, he will leave his penats. / It will be a tight street for this huge love. ” Yaroslav Smelyakov created the inimitable type of the Soviet 'girl next door', which accompanied all our love lyrics, and in fact the very cultural tradition. From the poem to the song, and from the song to the film, the many-faced but recognizable “good girls of Lida” wandered. And here I recall these lines of Lev Oshanin: “And we have one girl in the courtyard, / She is inconspicuous between noisy friends. / None of the guys inconspicuous it. / I look after her: “there is nothing in her” But! “But I’m still looking, I’m not taking my eyes off ...” But over time, the yard community was a thing of the past - people moved to separate apartments, to new buildings of the same type, and there was already a completely different life.

... By the 1970-1980 years, the yard, as the focus of child socialization, lost its meaning, which, however, coincided with the total disconnection of the population. Evgeny Gabrilovich, creating in 1985-1986 the documentary “The Yards of Our Childhood” documentary emphasized that this is a bygone nature. That which will never be. Nostalgia of fifty-year-old romantics for children's games and youthful dreams. Retro-images - under the forgotten gramophone rhythms. It was then that a popular song was made to the poems of Larisa Rubalskaya: “I remember all the time / Our old yards, / Where the golden balls blossomed in autumn.” It was said that once, in those yards, there was a slow and very correct life: “Everyone returned from work, / There was no need for a telephone. / There were common concerns / And one gramophone. " Sad motive and feeling of autumn life. Although there is an attempt to smile: "From the yard lay the beginning / Love, fate, roads."

Of course, the courtyard is our bright past, but there is no reason to try to barren nostalgic. It was just and it is beautiful. At the same time, yard unity did not come to replace ... nothing. What will the future functionary say? "Computer Shooting Game" World tanks"Taught me to be brave and mobile?" Okay, if the World of Tanks. Everything is good, but after all - solid social networks. And what can VKontakte or, for example, Facebook teach? To be rude and show off? But precisely for this they beat in the yard ...

        Pain, splinter! Right in the heart. That's it, the details are not important.
        Yards! This is history. There will be no continuation.
        Apartments, cottages, Internet are divided and crushed constantly.
        Everyone himself and against all.
        A lot of things have changed. Changes are perceived with difficulty. Huge.
        It’s even more difficult to understand and accept. It’s not easy to mount oneself in this life, but it’s not realistic to teach children and grandchildren. For them, virtual reality is real. hi

        Most importantly, our parents only worried about us in order to eat, and so - at least until midnight they gated !. They had no idea about any pedophiles. The case when a barn was hacked and a bicycle was dragged along the entire street was discussed for six months.

        Yes, damn, remember your childhood and tears flowing from our eyes, our childhood was both happy and good, of course there were all kinds of bruises and abrasions and games, and at that time there were no Internet and computers, but we walked until dark and our parents didn’t worry, thought they would feed the child, but they did the lessons. Don’t believe the bike if someone left it on the landing, the clothes were dried in the street and the goats were constantly clogging the goat in the dominoes in the yard. But you won’t stop now and let other children have a happy childhood .

        to the yard boys who were just waiting to kick a good violin boy
        Well, not to that extent. Yes it was, I got it for wearing glasses. Until he fought back. I remember one thing for sure, nobody hit me in the back. Of the boys with violins and bespectacles, y-births were rarely raised. But two or three for one, it was. However, most often the strong had hangers-on. So out of such hangers-on something that grew up ... that is ready to sell Russia and is now sitting in the opposition and pouring mud on the country.

          Yes, thieves "romance" strongly podgadil our youth! Although there is no romance there - "stole, drank - to prison ..." And so on. "chanson" (incorrect, of course, the name of the genre) also spoiled; the same Tanich with Lesopoval - who would have expected a person with such a biography? ... Well, all kinds of openly criminal “art authorities” followed him, like the same Circle ... No matter how much belonged (I suspect that "minusculers from admirers of talent" will attack), but - a generally good person who went in the stream of the conjuncture ended exponentially! ...

      And I would be nostalgic! This is for pupazzo. My childhood is the sixties, my youth is the seventies. I am one of those who grew up in the yard, because - our parents had no time to deal with us. Mine, for example, worked at the factory and worked four for the fifth (who does not know what it is, I will explain - four nights - day off, four evening - day off, four daytime - day off). They themselves met when they fell into the night and daytime. We ourselves prepared our eggs, did our homework, cleaned ourselves (as we could) in the room, because we lived in communal apartments, we went out onto the street when we thought it was necessary, and we also left it. I am now over sixty, but our friendship is strong, as before. We share our successes and sorrows, together we rejoice at the successes of our children and grandchildren (and some great-grandchildren) and also discuss how we can help in their difficulties. I can call any of my friends at two in the morning and ask him for help, and I will be sure that he will not refuse, but will fly. Our friendship has experienced everything. We fought with each other, we fell in love with some girls, together we got into the cops for any adventures, we swore to each other that we would never betray and did not betray. The only one thing was that we began to meet more often in order to conduct someone there from where they do not return. Alas, age, sores. Half of us were in Chernobyl, others worked in dirty industries, and still others simply thumped. I have left two friends with whom friendship lasts 56 years !!! From kindergarten. Here I wrote it, but the cats themselves scratched their hearts .....

      And for dessert, white acacia clusters are fragrant! We read books all, and gave them to read, and library ones - retold. And then they drove through the streets - to the war room, to the Indians and to the elusive avengers! I was one girl among four boys. No one has ever offended anyone. But there was a fifth. They beat him a couple of times. What a boy with a violin! A boy throwing stones, a striker with a stick from around the corner, screaming nastiness from behind the fence. What is called - a patient on his head. And he ended his life at the age of 20 in prison, where he was simply killed. It is his memory that poisons the memory of those years!

    I would not romanticize the Soviet yard punks. Such “socialization” has much in common with knocking predators into the pack. Only if in living nature such “socialization” is determined by the laws of the struggle for survival, then the yard hooligan pursued the goal of domination, submission of the weak to his will. From idleness and from low culture no socialization is obtained. True socialization can only be within the framework of the whole society, and not the rival "authorities" that are at war between themselves. True socialization occurs only in joint LABOR, in labor collectives, in the fields, at the construction sites of a great socialist country, and not in idleness and not in a "collective" pursuit of pleasures. It is necessary to clearly distinguish between the socialization of PEOPLE and the "socialization" of cattle from the gateway.
    However, domestic fame quickly ended. Hooliganism grew up, acquired families, children, went to the factory, where the work team without any problems put in place any gangster. They became silk, even joined the party and did not like to remember their non-good childhood in the yard ...

      You are wrong, Denis, very wrong. It was a school of life. Yes, it happened and fought, and smoked secretly. But more learned to be friends, and oddly enough to love their homeland. And the current disunity and sitting at the computer will not lead to anything good, children should lead an active lifestyle.
      True socialization occurs only in joint LABOR, in labor collectives, in the fields, at the construction sites of a great socialist country, and not in idleness and not in a "collective" pursuit of pleasures.

      No slogans needed. And it’s not about those courtyards in the article that you read about, apparently in books (with punks and thieves in law, those just involved petty majors in their companies).
      Great article. My childhood was remembered as in reality.

      The article is about ordinary children from ordinary working families who, growing up, went through the first stages of socialization in their small courtyard collectives. They comprehended life through live communication, through sports games. And it’s not necessary that this courtyard environment criminalized the growing generation in the future. In the years described, no one wanted to be a gangster. This is the prerogative of the 90s

      Denis. I completely agree with the first part of the article. I do not understand the "cons". Cons and pros are much more than comments. People are becoming smaller and probably do not know what the yards of the 50s and 60s are. A photograph - no later than the summer of 1962, but according to my feelings, earlier.

      Denis, you are a person, and people are such living things that they cannot live without socialization. You contrast the "wildlife" and "yard hooliganism." So, we, all, are wildlife. Instincts can't be got anywhere. Scientists call it all, intraspecific aggression. And if the child has not passed the school of "yard hooliganism", then he is not viable. That is, it is viable in limited conditions. And in these greenhouse conditions, his internal aggressiveness will begin to look for other ways. She will go inward to self-destruction or outward, and will often look in a perverted form. In our childhood, the author of the article correctly says, "that we studied ...". I would add that it was learning to live. Look, read what happens in the West. The most prosperous countries take first place in suicides, taking antidepressants, and the number of perverts. They did not go through socialization, they did not fight, they do not know how to behave with other people. From here comes hatred, just from a misunderstanding. Surrounding people seem to be monsters to fight with. Isn’t that the reason for so many Europeans now, jihad lovers? Yes, and with the liberals, everything is fine. The same hatred from the fact that they "deuce" in childhood, and captured in life.

        I agree! The point here is not at all about jihad or Islam in general, but the fact that its representatives are mainly from traditional, still, societies, where everything is in order with socialization. And in an effort to join the former, the “civilized Europeans” are actually seeking psychological compensation for what they were deprived of in their own atomized societies. The same thing can be said about the Russians - residents of big cities.
        I note one more related point. More than once I noticed among our natives from the South that their boys are constantly spinning in company and at dinner with their older male relatives. Their men do not hesitate to closely educate their heirs. But for us, both in families and in educational institutions, all these important points are almost entirely given to women’s hands. And this has been going on for a long time - of those times from which we are nostalgic here. But women do not bring up a man - in the full sense of the word! And then the grown up girls are faced with a lack of “real men”, because their peers were brought up the same and the same way as themselves.
        Moreover, even girls should, to a much greater extent, be brought up under the guidance of male guardians. “Mom’s son” and “father’s daughter” - completely different meanings and attitude to them!

          In confirmation of your words. Recently, a documentary film is a little boy in ISIS. A hostage, so that his mother does not run away. The bandits taught the language, prayers, shoot, conspiracy, disassemble and assemble the machine with their eyes closed, carried everywhere with them, explained that Infidels must be killed. And how to distinguish them. The house didn’t want to. I wanted to return from home and scolded my relatives. Here.

      I would not romanticize the Soviet yard punks. Such “socialization” has much in common with knocking predators into the pack. Only if in living nature such "socialization" is due to the laws of the struggle for survival, then the yard hooligan pursued the goal of domination, submission of the weak to his will. From idleness and from low culture no socialization is obtained. ... It is necessary to clearly distinguish between the socialization of PEOPLE and the "socialization" of cattle from the gateway.

      Yes. the fracture occurred somewhere at the turn of the 60s and 70s ...
      Then there appeared “Kazan phenomena”, “tyap-blunders” and te te: youth gang groups, not poorly trained, by the way, in terms of education and the general culture of young people. Exhausted "spiritual heritage"? The differentiation of society according to material prosperity, "according to the color of the pants - from crimson to yellow" (tsak in the nose and two times "ku" in addition) has increased? ...
      It seems to me that the lion's share of guilt here is on the Communist Party, "the inspirational and guiding force of our society," which had significantly degraded by then! It was not in vain that Stalin planned the gradual withdrawal of the Communist Party from the "leading and directing" ... perhaps for this he "died in the country" ...

      For Denisa Obukhova. As you described "socialization", you might think of us, (the Soviet yard punks "there could be nobody but bandits, lumpen. For your information: I and my friends probably had 20 drives in mentovka, we were registered in the "Children's Police Room", but despite this, we turned out to be quite normal people. One of my friends (he was the same one, he didn’t climb out of the cops), graduated from the institute, was the project’s lead specialist, the smartest man, unfortunately he’s not with us. Another, no less hooligan, became an excellent doctor - venereologist (sometimes they came to him from the old memory), the third became a pilot, now retired DOSAAF, and so it can be said about many. Not everyone became outstanding, most worked in factories turners, locksmiths, steelworkers, someone turned the wheel for a lifetime, most importantly, we became people who honestly worked in production, we raised children, now we bring up grandchildren and great-grandchildren, we can We are proud to have lived our lives for a reason. Yes, we didn’t grab stars from heaven, did not become money bags, business leaders. Not so educated! D for the most part we come from working families, and with what pride our parents boasted to their neighbors and work colleagues that we entered institutes and technical schools. They acted themselves, and not with the help of rich dads and mothers. Yes, in our childhood, not everything was cloudless. There are those who went to the zones, some perished there, but you must understand that article 206 part 1 (hooliganism) could be earned then easier than drinking a glass of vodka. And having got there once, not everyone then scrambled out. There were those who began to live in Leninist style: now to prison, then to exile. I also have such friends. One spent 36 years in the zone, so what? no need to judge that era. She was better than the present.

    They beat in the yard both the weak and those who could not fend for themselves and those who could not get settled. And, actually, there was every way. The myth of the "court" created by the author is very similar to the myth of the prison, that there is no soldering.

        "Raising a subordinate in the army is clearly not a primary goal." Usually people, when they say so, mean that they don’t care at all about this issue. Teaching is not a priority for a teacher, the main thing is to teach!, To feed and put on shoes with parents, to give a pill to a doctor, to report to a supervisor to an official and pass on the loot, to sell to a salesman, and to make a profit from a businessman. So everything is fine, everything is wonderful in our country and society. Everyone lives right and honestly. Particularly "touched" by the phrase: "army .... by the way, like prison."

    Regarding the author’s excursion into literature, an old joke about socialist realism was recalled:
    Lame on his left foot, a curve on his left eye and a dry-handed man on his left hand, the paddies called on three artists and ordered his portrait to be painted.
    The first artist painted the padishah crooked, lame and dry-armed and was executed, he did not like the portrait of the shah because of the truth (remember the portraits of Gorbachev MS without a birthmark).
    The second painted the eyes of the padishah, aligned his arms and legs, and was executed for untruth.
    The third painted a padishah on horseback, with a saber in his hand on the right side and was kindly and awarded.
    The first artist was a representative of realism, the second - idealism, and the third became the founder of socialist realism. To whom to attribute the author of the article - decide for yourself.

Relatives said that in some courtyard they always repaired something. In the other, towns or bast shoes or dovecote , or something else. There were different games, both mobile and at the table. At the same time, there were fights of one region with another. The border is on the avenue. I don’t know the details of these fights for various reasons.

      Visbor, "Volleyball on Sretenka" ...
      Do you remember, friend, a team from our yard,
      Post-war - above the rope - volleyball,
      While for the section we have not stolen the grid
      The fourth number is Kolya Zyat, a famous thief.
      And the first number on the pitch is Vladik Kop,
      The owner of the dreaded tarpaulin ball
      Which if you hit someone in the forehead,
      You can establish death without a doctor.
      And the fifth number, our defender, Max Charol,
      Which is famous for its wild leaps,
      And also because he is king in algebra,
      But the yard does not blame him at all.
      Said Gireev, our janitor’s son,
      Stolen merchant and fiery player.
      Serega Mukhin, letting go of his mustache,
      And in the past - a humble author of these lines.
      Yes, this is our generation, -
      The rudiment in today's worlds,
      Like semi-rigid mounts
      Or radio in the courtyards.
      Like semi-rigid mounts
      Or radio in the courtyards.
      But the enemy - he is impudent and brawler,
      For games, he wears a razor, then a gun:
      Here a famous terrorist captains,
      The son of the Assyrian, the Assyrian Leo Uranus,
      Known for not trembling before the authorities,
      He threatened the beast-director with a desk,
      And he threw a desk from the sixth floor,
      But, unfortunately for the school, I didn’t get it.
      Two tanks and two queens converge
      Here is our Elba, a meeting of troops of distant countries:
      The thief’s Kolya-in-law walks,
      Towards - hands in trousers - Levochka Uranus.
      This is where the movie begins.
      And pours spice into this dish
      Belova Tanya, looking out the window, -
      Intra-district genius of pure beauty.
      Well, without a fight? Volleyball is so volleyball!
      Knives set aside before the fateful meeting,
      And Kolya’s son-in-law already puts a “stake”
      Taking off, like Schagin, over the clothesline.
      Yes, and this is our generation -
      The rudiment in today's worlds,
      Like semi-rigid mounts
      Or radio in the courtyards.
      Meat section. Central market. The day is over.
      And thirty years have passed - oh God, thirty years! -
      And the Assyrian seller tells me:
      "Of course I remember volleyball. But there is no meat!"
      Said Gireev - this is a surprise! - hooked slightly,
      Then again, then fought off the guys.
      And Kolya-in-law went to the landing troops,
      And there, according to rumors, he quite found himself.
      And Max Charol is again a protector and a hero,
      He has a secret identity and shelter.
      He was so zealous for the grave bomb,
      What became a member by the name of Petrov.
      And Vladik Kop went to the town of Sydney,
      Where is the ocean, ballet and drink in the morning
      Where, of course, there is no sleigh or workdays,
      And also there is no stake and no yard.
      Well, okay, that's not the point,
      May God grant that Vladik accumulate some money there.
      But where will he find our old Sretensky yard? -
      This is a pity, this is really a pity.
      Well, then, everyone chose faith and life,
      Fifty games in death by winning in a row.
      And only the major of the landing troops N.N. Zyatiev
      Lying shot under the city of Herat.
      Stop screaming! Quietly, Sretenka, do not cry!
      We became all your common destiny:
      Those who were pulled into this frivolous match
      And who is tied has become a clothesline.
      Yes, our generation is leaving -
      The rudiment in today's worlds,
      Like semi-rigid mounts
      Or radio in the courtyards.

    And also about the author’s excursion into literature (for those who are interested in my comment). There were several other opinions about the relationship in the "yard".
    I think that few will deny the contribution of Vysotsky V.V. into Russian and Soviet poetry and song. Song title: About Earring Fomin.
    It is enough to type these three words in the search engine and you can read the text and listen to the song itself.

      And evening prayers
      Among the trophies
      And peace bonfires
      Book children lived
      Not knowing the battle
      Languishing from small
      Its disaster.

      Children are always annoyed
      They grow up and life, -
      And we fought for abrasions,
      To great insults.
      But latali clothes
      Mothers on time,
      We swallowed the books,
      Drunk from the lines.

      Sticky hair to us
      On sweating foreheads
      And sucked in the stomach
      Sweet from the phrase
      And shook our heads
      The smell of struggle
      From the pages turned yellow
      Flying on us.

      And tried to comprehend
      We who did not know wars
      For war cry
      Taking a howl
      The secret of the word "prikaz",
      Boundary
      The meaning of attack and clank
      War chariots.

      And in boiling boilers
      Previous slaughter and trouble
      So much food for the little ones.
      Our brains!
      We are the role of the traitors
      Trusov, Judah
      In their children's games
      Assigned enemies.

      And the villain's footsteps
      They didn’t let it cool
      And the most beautiful ladies
      They promised to love
      And, having calmed my friends
      And loving others
      We are the heroes
      Introduced yourself.

      Only in dreams
      Run away completely:
      A short century of fun -
      So much pain around!
      Try your hand
      Have the dead open
      And take guns
      Of the strained hands.

      Test capturing
      With a warm sword
      And wearing armor
      How much, how much!
      Figure out who you are
      Or the chosen one of fate,
      And taste it
      Real fight.

      And when it crashes nearby
      Wounded friend,
      And over the first loss
      You howl, mourn
      And when you're skinless
      Will stay suddenly
      Because they killed him -
      Not you, -

      You will understand that you learned
      Distinguished, found
      By the grin he climbed:
      This is a grin of death!
      Lies and evil - look
      How their faces are lips!
      And always behind
      Crows and coffins.

      If, the path is clear
      Father's sword
      You are salty tears
      I wound it around my mustache
      If in a hot fight
      Tested that how much -
      So, the right books
      You read in childhood!

      If meat with a knife
      You didn’t eat a single piece,
      If the hands are folded
      Watched down on me
      And did not enter the fight
      With a scoundrel, with an executioner, -
      So in life you were
      Not at all, not at all!

          And the self-propelled guns ?, and the slingshots made of rubber bandage or rubber for cord models, but for silk stockings or a ball of “felts”? Nostalgia. And now the pipe is lower and the smoke is thinner.

                The most chic rubber for a slingshot was a medical rubber harness. And what is a "Hungarian"?

                  "Round" tires, white, but better than blue. Officially used for rubber engines in models, unofficially in slingshots and rifles firing spools.

          Especially after the rental of the Polish film Crusaders. In our town in the courtyard of the grocery store, where the wooden boxes were folded, a guard was put up. It was painful that glorious swords were cut out of these planks, and on the shields we took from the coverings ...

              Not even a bit. The fact is that at that time all possible improvised means were used, and young men already learned about bandage rubber when it became fashionable to “swing” using rubber. And it was often dry, torn, but it was already in the second half of the 60's ...

    My childhood passed in the seventies, the beginning of the eighties in the courtyard of miners' two-story buildings. The courtyard fraternity was in the first place! They stood against each other! They were friends with neighboring yards, but there were clashes with other areas ...
    On summer evenings, they gathered for sheds around the campfire. They brought potatoes and baked in a campfire, told horror stories, or who read an interesting book. Well, they smoked while imagining themselves adults. bast shoes, etc. And in winter, hockey, the construction of fortresses, ice-skating ...
    Parents could not drive home. There was a great childhood! ... good

        Well, since such a booze has gone, I’ll also insert my own accordion, or rather an accordion.
        There was a time, a present. We played "Cossack robbers", drew asphalt on the squares with chalk ... yes yes, and I jumped into these "classics"! We jumped from a barn into a snowdrift, built tree huts, played war games, who with what, my father personally bought a kind of "Kalash" in the store (I don’t remember the price), I remember for some reason it was white ... The main thing is the emblem of the Airborne Forces was there. The legs and arms were cut ... During one such game, in the winter, in the evening, he fell and stumbled upon a broken bottle, below the knee joint. Mother in shock, I am calm, like a boa constrictor. Then the truth, I was tortured to smear Vinshevsky’s ointment .. And the kites from the newspaper? We have at least 3-4 snakes constantly hanging over the cities ... Where are the snakes? ... crying

    Oh, the courtyards of our childhood. They fought in the blood, but respect could be won without massacre. Skills and knowledge were appreciated. Dexterity in games. The ability to play musical instruments - on the guitar, for example. And yes, I had to “regulate” the punks. I was lucky from birth, and came out with growth, and God did not offend by force, and successfully engaged in boxing ... But some had to drive respect into the subconscious. And then it became very dangerous, dabbled with knives. Three of the youngsters left the courtyard, one - for the murder. That one was a courtyard ...

    Yes ... such an era in the past.
    I remember that then there was a problem to drive home (even hunger did not always bring home), and now it is difficult to drive out.
    The court essentially gave the first lessons of the socialization of man.

      Exactly, like a spioneer at a construction site a pack of construction cartridges. At first they blew one at a time simply on the gas burner, loudly, but not effectively. Then they stuck the remainder in titanium ... the door tore. Serega didn’t go out for a week, his father’s belt, you know.

    I would also add that youth remembered. But seriously, the article is very good. In my youth, if someone else’s caretaker escorted a local girl, then while he didn’t touch him with her, then a lice test started and if he stood up to it, then nobody would ever touch him again and, in principle, the yard spirit would always kill before future drudges

    outskirts of Moscow, our neighborhood was divided into quarters. a walk into the neighboring quarter without a knife or a sharpened screwdriver was fraught. quarters fought among themselves. but sometimes united for fights with Moscow Region. uniform - kirzachi and quilted jacket. highest chic - army pea jacket with a collar.

    Yeahhhhhh !!!! That reminded so reminded! My mother gathered a piece of iron titina (mulberry) into my mug, and there was a small hole in the bottom. I was completely small, I chopped the tyut with my fist, and ran the juice from it ... through this hole. Here I then smeared with them all, until my mother saw. I almost fainted. I'm all black and purple. Washed me off for about a month. laughing laughing laughing
