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.
