Я пережил свои желанья

Language: Russian (Русский)

Я пережил свои желанья,
Я разлюбил свои мечты;
Остались мне одни страданья,
Плоды сердечной пустоты.

Под бурями судьбы жестокой
Увял цветущий мой венец,
Живу печально, одинокой
И жду: придёт ли мой конец?

Так, поздним хладом [поражённый,]1
[Как бури слышен зимний свист,]2
Один на ветке обнажённой
Трепещет запоздалый лист.
