Street musician plays guitar on the Italian Bridge. One of the melodies he plays is "And I Love Her" written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon in 1964. The atmosphere of the crossroad reminds me verses written by William Shakespere four centuries ago:
Mark how one string, sweet husband to another,
Strikes each in each by mutual ordering;
Resembling sire, and child, and happy mother,
Who all in one, one pleasing note do sing;
Whose speechless song being many, seeming one,
Sings this to thee, 'Thou single wilt prove none.

Caption in Russian - Уличный гитарист
Уличный гитарист играет на Итальянском мосту. Одна из мелодий его репертуара - "And I Love Her", написанная Полом Маккартни и Джоном Ленноном в 1964 году. Атмосфера перекрестка напомнила стихи Уильяма Шекспира (в переводе С.Я.Маршака), написанные четыре столетия назад:
Прислушайся, как дружественно струны
Вступают в строй и голос подают, -
Как будто мать, отец и отрок юный
В счастливом единении поют.

Нам говорит согласье струн в концерте,
Что одинокий путь подобен смерти.
