Он так меня любил

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

Нет, не любила я! но странная забота
Теснила грудь мою, когда он приходил;
То вся краснела я, боялася чего то,
Он так меня любил, он так меня любил!

Чтоб нравиться ему тогда, цветы и те наряды
Я берегла, что он по сердцу находил;
С ним говорила я, его ловила взгляды, -
Он так меня любил, он так меня любил!

Но раз он мне сказал: ,,В ту рощу,
в час за ката придёшь ли?`` -- ,,Да, приду!``
Но не хватило сил. Я в рощу не пошла,
он ждал меня напрасно!

Тогда уехал он, сердясь на неудачу;
Несчастный, как меня проклясть он должен был!
Я не увижусь с ним, мне тяжело, я плачу...
Он так меня любил, он так меня любил!

Il m'aimait tant

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

Non, je ne l'aimais pas ! Mais un étrange émoi
Oppressait ma poitrine, quand il arrivait ;
À un moment je rougissais, au suivant la moindre chose m'effrayait,
Il m'aimait tant, il m'aimait tant !

Pour lui plaire, les fleurs et les tenues,
Je portais ce qui était à son goût ;
Je lui parlais, j'attrapais son regard,
Il m'aimait tant, il m'aimait tant !

Mais un jour il m'a dit : « Dans le bosquet,
À l'heure du coucher du soleil, viendras-tu ? » -- « Oui, je viendrai ! »
Mais c'était au-dessus de mes forces. Je ne suis pas allée dans le bois,
Il m'a attendu en vain !

Puis il est parti, en colère de son échec ;
Homme malheureux, comme il a dû me maudire !
Je ne le reverrai jamais, c'est dur pour moi, je pleure...
Il m'aimait tant, il m'aimait tant !
