Как над горячею золой

Language: Russian (Русский)

Как над горячею золой
Дымится свиток и сгорает,
И огнь сокрытый и глухой
Слова и строки пожирает:
Так грустно тлится жизнь моя
И с каждым днём уходит дымом;
Так постепенно гасну я
В однообразьи нестерпимом...
О, небо, если бы хоть раз
Сей пламень развился по воле,
И, не томясь, не мучась доле,
Я просиял бы и погас!
