О Делвиг, Делвиг!

Language: Russian (Русский)

О Дельвиг, Дельвиг! Что награда
И дел высоких и стихов? 
Таланту что и где отрада
Среди злодеев и глупцов?

В руке суровой Ювенала 
Злодеям грозный быч свистит
И краску гонит с их ланит. 
И власть тиранов задрожала. 

О Дельвиг, Дельвиг, что гоненья?
Бессмертие равно удел 
И смелых вдохновенных дел
И сладостного песнопеня!

Так не умрёт и наш союз, 
Свободный, радостный и гордый! 
И в счастье и в несчастье твёрдый
Союз любимцев вечных муз!

Ô Delvig, Delvig !

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

Ô Delvig, Delvig ! Qu'y-a-t-il comme récompense
Pour les actions sublimes et la poésie ?
Quelle place y-a-t-il pour le talent
Parmi les vauriens et les fous ?

Sous la main dure de Juvénal
L'effrayant knout menace les criminels
Et enlève la couleur de leurs joues
Et le pouvoir des tyrans tremblait.

Ô Delvig, Delvig ! Qu'y-a-t-il pour la persécution ?
L'immortalité est le lot
Pour des actions courageuses et inspirées
Et pour des chants délicieux !

Ainsi ne mourra jamais notre union
Libre, joyeuse et fière !
Et dans le bonheur et le malheur restera fermement
Le lien des amis des muses éternelles.
