Upon learning this, Mary escapes to the steppe, where, according to legend, the famous song of recognition was born, the crying song “Dudarai” - that is what Maria called her Duysen. He soon went after her to the steppe, which became their home.
They suffered hardships, lived by the river, found shelter in the coastal reeds. And the heart of Duisen's parents quivered. The young were returned home, they played a wedding. So love triumphed, its strength helped the young to resist everything.
But their happiness was fleeting. Soon after the wedding, Duisen was drafted into the royal army, where he was struck by consumption. A tall, handsome handsome man died. And the inconsolable widow was only 18 years old ...
