У врат обители святой

Language: Russian (Русский)

У врат обители святой
Стоял просящий подаянья,
[Бедняк иссохший, чуть живой]1
От глада, жажды и страданья.

Куска лишь хлеба он просил,
И взор являл живую муку,
И кто-то камень положил
В его протянутую руку.

Так я молил твоей любви
С слезами горькими, с тоскою;
Так чувства лучшие мои
[Обмануты навек]2 тобою!


Translation(s): ENG FRE GER
