Nad prozrachnymi vodami
Sidja, rval Uslad venok;
I shumjashchimi volnami
Unosil cvety potok.
«Tak begut leta mladye
Nevozvratnoju strujej;
Tak vse radosti zemnye —
Cvet uvjadshij polevoj.

Akh! bezvremennoj toskoju
Umershchvlen moj milyj cvet.
Vse voskresnulo s vesnoju;
Obnovilsja bozhij svet;
Ja smotrju — i kholm veselyj
I polja omracheny;
Dlja dushi osiroteloj
Net cvetushchija vesny.

Chto v prirode, ozarennoj
Krasotoju majskikh dnej?
Jest' odna vo vsej vselennoj —
K nej dusha, i mysl' ob nej;
K nej stremlju, zabyvshis', ruki —
Milyj prizrak proch' letit.
Kto zh moi uslyshit muki,
Zhazhdu serdca utolit?»
