Не ветер, вея с высоты

Language: Russian (Русский)

Не ветер, вея с высоты,
Листов коснулся ночью лунной.
Моей души коснулась ты.
Она тревожна, как листы,
Она, как гусли, многострунна.

Житейский вихрь её терзал
И сокрушительным набегом,
Свистя и воя, струны рвал
И заносил холодным снегом.

Твоя же речь ласкает слух,
Твоё легко прикосновенье,
Как от цветов летящий пух,
Как майской ночи дуновенье.
