Вечерний звон

Language: Russian (Русский) after the English

Вечерний звон, вечерний звон! 
Как много дум наводит он
О юных днях в краю родном,
Где я любил, где отчий дом,
И как я, с ним навек простясь,
Там [слушал]1 звон в последний раз! 

Уже не зреть мне светлых дней
Весны обманчивой моей! 
И сколько нет теперь в живых
Тогда веселых, молодых! 
И крепок их могильный сон;
Не слышен им вечерний звон. 

Лежать и мне в земле сырой! 
Напев [унывный]2 надо мной
В долине ветер разнесет;
Другой певец по ней пройдет,
И уж не я, а будет он
В раздумье петь вечерний звон!
