You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

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!
