На нивы жёлтые нисходит тишина

Language: Russian (Русский)

На нивы жёлтые нисходит тишина,
в остывшем воздухе от меркнущих селений,
дрожа, несется звон... Душа моя полна
разлукою с тобой и горьких сожалений.

И каждый мой упрек я вспоминаю вновь,
и каждое твержу приветливое слово,
что мог бы я сказать тебе, моя любовь,
[но что внутри себя]1 я схоронил сурово.

Sur les guérets jaunis, le calme est descendu

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

Sur les guérets jaunis, le calme est descendu ;
Dans l'air plus froid, que les ténèbres envahissent
Des cloches ont tinté. Mon cœur, comme éperdu,
Répète nos adieux ; d'amers regrets l'emplissent.

Ainsi que des remords tout passe, jour par jour, 
Et je vais répétant cent et cent douces choses
Que j'eusse pu te dire, hélas ! ô mon amour, 
Mais qu'au profond de moi je tins alors encloses.
