Что в имени тебе моём?

Language: Russian (Русский)

Что в имени тебе моём?
Оно умрёт, как [шум]1 печальный
Волны, плеснувшей в берег дальний,
Как звук ночной в лесу глухом.

Оно на памятном листке
Оставит мёртвый след, подобный
Узору надписи надгробной
На непонятном языке.

Что в нём? Забытое давно
В [волненьях]2 новых и мятежных,
Твоей душе не даст оно
Воспоминаний [чистых]3 нежных.

Но в [день]4 печали, в тишине,
Произнеси его тоскуя;
Скажи: есть память обо мне,
Есть в мире сердце, где живу я...
