Он так меня любил

Language: Russian (Русский)

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!

He loved me so much

Language: English after the Russian (Русский)

No, I wasn’t in love! But a strange feeling
Seized my breast, when he came near;
So that I blushed, vulnerable to something,
He loved me so much, he loved me so much!

In order to please him then, certain flowers and outfits
I put on, so that he would hold me in a speacial place in his heart;
I conversed with him, trying to catch his eye, –
He loved me so much, he loved me so much!

But once he said to me: “In the grove,
will you meet me in an hour?” – “Yes, I’ll come!”
But that wasn’t enough. I didn’t go to the woods,
and he waited for me in vain!

Then he departed, angry at my failure to appear;
Miserable, that’s how he should curse my behaviour!
Now I won’t ever see him again, and it’s hard for me, I’m paying for it now…
He loved me so much, he loved me so much!
