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 April 20, we are $4,600 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 and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Песнь Цыганки

Language: Russian (Русский)

Мой костер в тумане светит,
Искры гаснут на лету...
Ночью нас никто не встретит;
Мы простимся на мосту.

Ночь пройдёт и спозаранок
В степь, далёко, милый мой,
Я уйду с толпой цыганок
За кибиткой кочевой.

На прощанье шаль с каймою
Ты на мне узлом стяни:
Как концы её, с тобою
Мы сходились в эти дни.

Кто-то мне судьбу предскажет?
Кто-то завтра, сокол мой,
На груди моей развяжет 
Узел, стянутый тобой?

Вспоминай, коли другая,
Другая милого любя,
Будет песни петь, играя
На коленях у тебя!

Мой костер в тумане светит,
Искры гаснут на лету...
Ночью нас никто не встретит;
Мы простимся на мосту.
