Дерзну ль, сокровище моё

Language: Russian (Русский) after the Italian (Italiano)

Дерзну ль, сокровище моё,
Существовать без вас, себе на муку,
Раз глухи вы к мольбам смягчить разлуку?
Унылым сердцем больше не таю
Ни возгласов, ни вздохов, ни рыданий,
Чтоб вам явить, мадонна, гнёт страданий
И смерть уж недалёкую мою;
Но дабы рок потом моё служенье
Изгнать из вашей памяти не мог, –
Я оставляю сердце вам в залог.

Est‑ce que j'ose, mon trésor

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

Est-ce que j'ose, mon trésor,
Exister sans vous, dans mes tourments,
Puisque vous êtes sourde à mes supplications d'adoucir notre séparation ?
Avec mon cœur découragé, je ne cache plus
Mes cris, mes soupirs, mes sanglots,
Pour vous montrer, Madonna, le poids de ma souffrance
Et ma mort qui n'est plus éloignée ;
Mais pour que plus tard par le sort ma dévotion
Ne soit pas bannie de votre mémoire,
Je vous laisserai mon cœur en gage.
