Город спит

Language: Russian (Русский)

Город спит, окутан мглою,
Чуть мерцают фонари...
Там далёко, за Невою,
Вижу отблески зари.

В этом дальнем отраженьи,
В этих отблесках огня
Притаилось пробужденье
Дней, тоскливых для меня...

La ville dort

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

La ville dort, voilée dans le brume,
les lampadaires scintillent faiblement ...
Au loin, au-delà de la Néva,
Je vois le rougeoiement de l'aube.

Dans ce reflet éloigné,
Dans ces lueurs de flamme
Se cache le réveil
De jours tristes qui m'attendent...
