Une aube affaiblie

Language: French (Français)

Une aube affaiblie
Verse par les champs
La mélancolie
Des soleils couchants.
La mélancolie
Berce de doux chants
Mon coeur qui s'oublie
Aux soleils couchants.
Et d'étranges rêves,
Comme des soleils
Couchants sur les grèves,
Fantômes vermeils,
Défilent sans trêves, 
Défilent, pareils
À des grands soleils
Couchants sur les grèves.

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

Вечерняя даль
Румянцем объята,
На поле печаль
Струится заката.
Струится печаль
О бывшем когда-то...
Кого-то мне жаль
Под песню заката.
И движется ряд
Багряных видений,
Встают и скользят
Их странные тени,
Встают и скользят
В причудливой смене,
И в алый закат
Уходят их тени.
