Над прозрачными водами
Сидя, рвал Услад венок;
И шумящими волнами
Уносил цветы поток.
«Так бегут лета младые
Невозвратною струей;
Так все радости земные —
Цвет увядший полевой.

Ах! безвременной тоскою
Умерщвлен мой милый цвет.
Все воскреснуло с весною;
Обновился божий свет;
Я смотрю — и холм веселый
И поля омрачены;
Для души осиротелой
Нет цветущия весны.

Что в природе, озаренной
Красотою майских дней?
Есть одна во всей вселенной —
К ней душа, и мысль об ней;
К ней стремлю, забывшись, руки —
Милый призрак прочь летит.
Кто ж мои услышит муки,
Жажду сердца утолит?»
