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!

Неспящих солнце, грустная звезда

Language: Russian (Русский) after the English

Неспящих солнце, грустная звезда,
как слезно луч мерцает твой всегда,
как темнота при нём ещё темней,
как он похож на радость прежних дней! 
Так светит прошлое нам в жизненной ночи,
но уж не греют нас бессильные лучи,
звезда минувшего, ты в горе мне видна,
видна, но далека, светла, но холодна.

Soleil de ceux qui ne dorment pas, astre mélancolique

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

Soleil de ceux qui ne dorment pas, astre mélancolique,
Comme tes rayons tremblent toujours pleins de larmes,
Comme l'obscurité est plus sombre auprès d'eux,
Comme tu es semblable au souvenir des vieux jours !
Ainsi brille devant nous le passé dans la nuit de la vie
Mais ses rayons impuissants ne nous réchauffent pas,
Astre du passé, je peux te voir dans ma douleur,
Visible, mais lointain, brillant, mais froid.
