Dave Hansen> As far as I remember it was originally called, ' The Silent Don '

A verse from an old song, quoted by Mikhail Sholokhov in "And Quiet Flows the Don":

Where are the geese? They've gone to the reeds.
And where are the reeds? They've been gathered by the girls.
And where are the girls? They've taken husbands.
And where are the Cossacks? They've gone to war.
