Today Jansug Charkviani, a well-known Georgian poet and a friend of 82-year old Shevardnadze quoted his poem to the Alia [georgian newspaper].
The poem's written in Georgian, in English the lines can be translated as "I will live much more,/ I'm a titan in an old way,/ When I die ,you must know, /Don't bring me roses."
According to Charkviani, the ex-President feels good and his sense of humour is still with him.
