Bylo vremja, procvetala

Language: Russian (Русский)

Bylo vremja, procvetala
V mire nasha storona:
V voskresenije byvala
Cerkov' bozhija polna;
Nashikh detok v shumnoj shkole
Razdavalis' golosa,
I sverkali v svetlom pole
Serp i bystraja kosa.

Nyne cerkov' opustela;
Shkola glukho zaperta;
Niva prazdno perezrela;
Roshcha temnaja pusta;
I selen'e, kak zhilishche
Pogoreloje, stoit, —
Tikho vse. Odno kladbishche
Ne pustejet, ne molchit.

Pominutno mertvykh nosjat,
I stenanija zhivykh
Bojazlivo boga prosjat
Upokoit' dushi ikh!
Pominutno mesta nado,
I mogily mezh soboj,
Kak ispugannoje stado,
Zhmutsja tesnoj cheredoj!

Jesli rannjaja mogila
Suzhdena mojej vesne —
Ty, kogo ja tak ljubila,
Ch'ja ljubov' otrada mne, —
Ja molju: ne priblizhajsja
K telu Dzhenni ty svojej,
Ust umershikh ne kasajsja,
Sleduj izdali za nej.

I potom ostav' selen'e!
Ukhodi kuda-nibud',
Gde b ty mog dushi muchen'e
Usladit' i otdokhnut'.
I kogda zaraza minet,
Poseti moj bednyj prakh;
A `Edmonda ne pokinet
Dzhenni dazhe v nebesakh!
