В безмолвии садов, весной, во мгле ночей

Language: Russian (Русский)

В безмолвии садов, весной, во мгле ночей,
Поёт над розою восточный соловей.
Но роза милая не чувствует, не внемлет,
И под влюбленный гимн колеблется и дремлет.
Не так ли ты поёшь для хладной красоты?
Опомнись, о поэт, к чему стремишься ты?
Она [не слушает, не чувствует]1 поэта;
Глядишь, она цветет; взываешь -- нет ответа.

Dans le silence du jardin, au printemps,...

Language: French (Français) after the Russian (Русский)

Dans le silence du jardin, au printemps, dans l'obscurité de la nuit,
Au dessus d'une rose chante le rossignol de l'est,
Mais la chère rose ne ressent rien, n'écoute pas,
Et à l'hymne enamouré elle se balance et s'endort.
Ne chantes-tu pas ainsi pour une froide beauté ?
Rappelle-toi , ô poète, à quoi tu aspires !
Elle n'écoute pas, ne ressent pas la poésie ;
Tu vois, elle fleurit ; tu l'appelles -- il n'y a pas de réponse.
