Kto b ni by'l ty', no, vstretyas` s nej

Language: Russian (Русский)

 Kto b ni by'l ty', no, vstretyas` s nej,
 Dushoyu chistoj il` grexovnoj,
 Ty' vdrug pochuvstvuesh` zhivej,
 Chto est` mir luchshij, mir duxovny'j.

 Kak nerazgadannaya tajna,
 Zhivaya prelest` dy'shit v nej —
 My' smotrim s trepetom trevozhny'm
 Na tixij svet ee ochej —

 Zemnoe l` v nej ocharovan`e,
 Il` nezemnaya blagodat`?..
 Dusha xotela b ej molit`sya,
 A serdce rvetsya obozhat`...
