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 May 6, we are $2,380 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 to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Неподвижные звёзды

Language: Russian (Русский) after the German (Deutsch)

Неподвижны в небе звёзды,
Века и века подряд
С любовью и тоскою
Друг на друга глядят.

И речи ведут чудесным,
Богатым языком,
Тем самым, что лучшим
Филологам не знаком.

Но мне их речь понятна,
Её я быстро постиг:
Грамматикой мослужил мне
Моей возлюбленной лик.

Ах, звёзды, протяните,
Вы к милой волшебные нити
И скажите, что поэт
Верен ей и шлёт привет.
