Есть другие планеты

Language: Russian (Русский)

Есть другие планеты, где ветры певучие тише,
Где небо бледнее, травы тоньше и выше,
Где прерывисто льются переменные светы,
Но своей переменой только ласкают, смеются.

Есть иные планеты, где мы были когда-то,
Где мы будем потом, не теперь, не теперь,
А когда, потеряв, себя потеряв без возврата,
Мы будем любить истомленные стебли седых
Шелестящих трав без аромата.

Тонких высоких, как звёзды печальных,
Любящих сонный покой мест погребальных,
Над нашей могилою спящих
И тихо, так тихо, так сумрачно тихо
Под луной шелестящих.

Il y a d'autres planètes

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

Il y a d'autres planètes, où les vents sont plus calmes et mélodieux,
Où le ciel est plus pâle, l'herbe plus mince et plus haute,
Où la lumière est intermittente et changeante,
Mais où son jeu n'est que caresse et douceur.

Il y a d'autres planètes, où nous étions autrefois,
Et où nous retournerons, pas maintenant, pas maintenant,
Quand nous nous perdrons nous-mêmes, nous perdrons sans retour,
Aimant seulement les tiges grises
Des herbes fanées et sans parfum qui bruissent.

Qui, fines et grandes, comme des étoiles tristes,
Aimant le sommeil paisible d'endroits funèbres,
Dorment au-dessus de nos tombes,
Si doucement, si doucement, si tristement, si doucement,
Sous le murmure de la lune.
