Anne Achmatovoj

Language: Russian (Русский)

O Muza plača, prekrasnejšaja iz muz!
O ty, šal'noe isčadie noči beloj! 
Ty čërnuju nasylaeš' metel' na Rus', 
I vopli tvoi vonzajutsja v nas, kak strely.

I my šarachaemsja, i gluchoe: och! 
Stotysjačnoe -- tebe prisjagaet. Anna 
Achmatova! Ėto imja -- ogromnyj vzdoch,
I v glub' on padaet, kotoraja bezymjanna. 

My koronovany tem, čto odnu s toboj
My zemlju topčem, čto nebo nad nami-to že! 
I tot, kto ranen smertel'noj tvoej sud'boj, 
Uže bessmertnym na smertnoe schodit lože. 

V pevučem grade moëm kupola gorjat, 
i Spasa svetlogo slavit slepec brodjačij . . . 
I ja darju svoj kolokol'nyj grad, 
- Achmatova! - I serdce svoe v pridaču.
