Не пой, красавица, при мне

Language: Russian (Русский)

Не пой, красавица, при мне
Ты песен Грузии печальной;
Напоминают мне [оне]1
Другую жизнь и берег дальний.

Увы, напоминают мне
Твои жестокие напевы
И степь, и ночь, и при луне
Черты далекой, бедной девы!

Я [призрак]2 милый, роковой,
Тебя увидев, забываю;
Но ты поёшь, и предо мной
Его я вновь воображаю.

Не пой, красавица, при мне
Ты песен Грузии печальной;
Напоминают мне [оне]1
Другую жизнь и берег дальний.

Géorgienne

Language: French (Français) after the Russian (Русский)

Ma belle, ne dis plus tout bas
Les vieux refrains de Géorgie,
Par grâce, ne rappelle pas
Les heureux jours d'une autre vie.

Tu chantes et je crois revoir
La nuit, la steppe solitaire,
Et sous les pâles feux du soir,
Les traits aimés de l'étrangère.

J'oublie, alors que je te vois,
Ces traits qui brisent mon courage;
Tu chantes, soudain devant moi
A reparu sa pâle image.

Ma belle, ne dis plus tout bas
Les vieux refrains de Géorgie,
Par grâce, ne rappelle pas
Les heureux jours d'une autre vie.
