                                         Умолкла вьюга – вот  и   слышно  мне
                                         После  ее   жестокого  набега, 
                                         Как   белая   береза   в   тишине 
                                         Роняет  на   сугробы   комья   снега. 
                                      
Sagi Zhiyenbayev wrote many poems about childhood, beloved mother, friends to whom the poet always remained abide. 

                                          Родная   степь – любовь  моя, 
                                          Мир  добрый   радостного  детства! 
                                          И  дар   поэта – знаю я – 
                                         Ты подарила  мне  в   наследство.

The poet had quiet intonations, a low voice and, perhaps, the main thing that does him not similar to others, - surprising softness and kindness. 

                                             Я  так   хочу,   чтобы   стихи   мои 
                                             Играли   красками  весны,  цветов,  заката, 
                                             И  песни   им   дарили   соловьи, 
                                             И  ветер  дал   степные  ароматы! 
                                             Чтобы  тепло  невидимых   лучей 
                                             Они  несли   уставшим   и  гонимым 
                                             И  чтоб   читали   их  в  тиши   ночей 
                                             Влюбленные  своим   любимым!
