You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Language: Russian (Русский)

О, засни, моё сердце, глубоко!
Не буди: - не пробудишь, что было,
Не зови, что умчалось далёко,
Не люби, что ты прежде любило...
Пусть надеждой и лживой мечтой
Не смутится твой сон и покой!

Для тебя невозвратно былое,
На грядущее нет упованья...
Ты не знало в блаженстве покоя,
Успокойся ж на ложе страданья,
И старайся не помнить зимой,
Как срывало ты розы весной!

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

Oh, dors profondément, mon cœur !
Ne t'éveille pas -- ne réveille pas le passé,
N'appelle pas ce qui a fui au loin,
N'aime pas ce que tu as aimé avant...
Que de faux espoirs et des rêves
Ne troublent pas ton sommeil et ton repos !

Pour toi le passé ne doit pas revenir,
Il n'y a pas d'espoir dans l'avenir...
Tu n'as pas connu le bonheur de la paix,
Reste calme sur le lit de souffrance,
Et n'essaie pas de te rappeler en hiver
Comment tu as cueilli des roses au printemps !
