Зачем крутится ветр в овраге?

Language: Russian (Русский)

Зачем крутится ветр в овраге?
волнует степь и пыль несёт,
когда корабль в недвижной влаге
его дыханья жадно ждёт?

Зачем от гор и мимо башен
летит орёл, угрюм и страшен,
на пень гнилой? Спроси его.
Зачем арапа своего

младая любит Дездемона,
как месяц любит ночи мглу?
Затем, что ветру и орлу,
и сердцу девы нет закона...

Гордись! Таков и ты, поэт!
И для тебя условий нет!
