Mečtatelju

Language: Russian (Русский)

Ty v strasti gorestnoj nachodiš' naslažden'e;
tebe prijatno slëzy lit',
naprasnym plamenem tomit' voobražen'e
i v serdce tichoe unynie tait'.

Pover', ne ljubiš' ty, neopytnyj mečtatel'!
O, esli by tebja, unylych čuvstv iskatel',
postiglo strašnoe bezumie ljubvi;
kogda b ves' jad eë kipel v tvoej krovi;

kogda by v dolgie časy bessonnoj noči
na lože, medlenno terzaemyj toskoj,
ty zval obmančivyj pokoj,
votšče smykaja skorbny oči,

pokrovy žarkie, rydaja, obnimal
i sochnul v bešenstve besplodnogo želan'ja, -
pover', togda b ty ne pital
neblagodarnogo mečtan'ja!

Net, net! v slezach upav k nogam
svoej ljubovnicy nadmennoj,
drožaščij, blednyj, isstuplennyj,
togda b voskliknul ty k bogam:

,,Otdajte, bogi, mne rassudok omračennyj,
voz'mite ot menja sej obraz rokovoj!
Dovol'no ja ljubil; otdajte mne pokoj!
No mračnaja ljubov' i obraz nezabvennyj
ostalis' večno by s toboj.
