Polyushko Pole (Russian spelling: Полюшко Поле) is a Soviet Russian-language song. Pole means "field" in Russian, "polyushko" is a diminutive/hypocoristic form for "pole".
The music was by Lev Knipper, with lyrics by Viktor Gusev. Knipper's song was part of the symphony with chorus (lyrics by Gusev) "A Poem about a Komsomol Soldier" (Поэма о бойце-комсомольце) composed in 1934. It was covered many times by many artists in the Soviet Union, including a well-known rock version made from the "Singing Guitars" (Russian: Поющие гитáры), released c. 1967. The song has been regularly performed and recorded by the Alexandrov Ensemble since 1928, and it is listed in the Alexandrov Ensemble discography.
