Поэт и Царь

Language: Russian (Русский)

Залом цареи. 
-- [Кто]1 непреклонный
Мраморный сей?

Столь величавый
В золоте барм? 
-- Пушкинской славы
Жалкий жандарм.

Автора -- хаял,
Рукопись -- стриг. 
Польского края --
Зверский мясник. 

Зорче вглядися!
Не забывай:
Царь Николай

Le poète et le tsar

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

Dans l'autre monde,
Le palais du Tsar...
Et qui est cet inflexible
En marbre ?

Si majestueux
Tout en or royal.
De la gloire de Pouchkine,
Le gendarme minable.

L'auteur -- le brime
Le manuscrit -- le déchire.
De la terre polonaise
Le brutal boucher !

Regardez bien !
Et n'oubliez pas :
Le tueur de poète
Le tsar Nicolas
Premier !
