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!

Слеза дрожит в твоём ревнивом взоре

Language: Russian (Русский)

Слеза дрожит в твоём ревнивом взоре...
О, не грусти, ты всё мне дорога!
Но я любить могу лишь на просторе,
мою любовь, широкую, как море,
вместить не могут, нет! вместить не могут жизни берега.

О, не грусти, мой друг, земное минет горе,
пожди ещё, неволя недолга.
В одну любовь мы все сольемся вскоре,
в одну любовь, широкую, как море,
что не вместят, нет! что не вместят земные берега.

Translation(s): ENG FRE FRE GER GER

Une larme tremble dans ton regard jaloux

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

Une larme tremble dans ton regard jaloux...
Oh, ne sois pas triste ; tu es encore chère à moi !
Mais je ne peux aimer que dans l'espace,
Mon amour, vaste comme la mer,
Ne peut tenir, non ! il ne peut tenir sur les rives de la vie.

Oh, ne sois pas triste, mon amie,  les malheurs terrestres
Attends un peu plus, le malheur sera de courte durée.
En un amour bientôt nous tous serons réunis,
En un amour, aussi vaste que la mer,
Qui ne peut tenir, non ! qui ne peut tenir sur les rives de la vie.
