Комнату лампада

Language: Russian (Русский)

Комнату лампада
Кротко озаряла.
Мать, над колыбелью
Наклонясь, стояла.

А в саду сердито
Выла буря злая,
Над окном деревья
Темные качая.
Дождь шумел, раскаты
Слышалися грома;
И гремел, казалось,
Он над крышей дома.
На малютку-сына
Нежно мать глядела;
Колыбель качая,
Тихо песню пела:
«[Да]1 уймись ты, буря!
Не шумите, ели!
Мой малютка дремлет
Сладко в колыбели!
Ты, гроза Господня,
Не буди ребёнка!
Пронеситесь, тучи
Черные, сторонкой.»
Бурь ещё не мало
Впереди, быть-может,
И не раз забота
Сон его встревожит.
Спи, дитя, спокойно!
Вот гроза стихает,
Матери молитва
Сон твой охраняет.

Завтра, как проснёшься
И откроешь глазки,
Снова встретишь солнце,
И любовь, и ласки.

La lampe de la chambre

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

La lampe de la chambre
Éclaire doucement.
La mère était penchée
Sur le berceau.

Dans le jardin
La tempête hurlait de colère.
Au-dessus des arbres
L'obscurité s'agitait.

La pluie bruissait, des grondements
De tonnerre se font entendre ;
Des cliquetis retentissaient
Sur le toit de la maison.

Sur son fils
La mère se penchait doucement ;
Elle agitait le berceau
Et chantait une chanson paisible :

« Ah, calme-toi, tempête !
Ne faites pas de bruit, sapins !
Mon bébé dort
Doucement dans le berceau !

Toi, Maîtresse tempête,
Ne réveille pas le bébé !
Passez, nuages
Noirs, au loin.

Tempête, plus maintenant, un peu
Plus tard, peut-être,
Et en faisant attention à ne pas
Troubler son sommeil.

Dors en paix, mon enfant !
La tempête diminue,
La prière de ta mère
Protège tes rêves.

Demain, quand tu te réveilleras
Et ouvriras tes yeux,
Tu rencontreras à nouveau le soleil,
Et l'amour et les caresses. »
