Ne poj, krasavica, pri mne

Language: Russian (Русский)

Ne poj, krasavica, pri mne
Ty pesen Gruzii pečal'noj;
Napominajut mne [one]1
Druguju žizn' i bereg dal'nij.

Uvy, napominajut mne
Tvoi žestokie napevy
I step', i noč', i pri lune
Čerty dalekoj, bednoj devy!

JA [prizrak]2 milyj, rokovoj,
Tebja uvidev, zabyvaju;
No ty poëš', i predo mnoj
Ego ja vnov' voobražaju.

Ne poj, krasavica, pri mne
Ty pesen Gruzii pečal'noj;
Napominajut mne [one]1
Druguju žizn' i bereg dal'nij.
