Предчувствие

Language: Russian (Русский)

Снова тучи надо мною
Собралися в тишине;
Рок завистливый бедою
Угрожает снова мне...
Сохраню ль к судьбе презренье?
Понесу ль навстречу ей
Непреклонность и терпенье
Гордой юности моей?

Бурной жизнью утомлённый,
Равнодушно бури жду:
Может быть, ещё, спасённый,
Снова пристань я найду...
Но, предчувствуя разлуку,
Неизбежный, грозный час,
Сжать твою, мой ангел, руку
Я спешу в последний раз.

Ангел кроткий, безмятежный,
Тихо молви мне: прости,
Опечалься: взор свой нежный
Подыми иль опусти;
И твоё воспоминанье
Заменит душе моей
Силу, гордость, упованье
И отвагу юных дней.

Pressentiment

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

Encore des nuages au-dessus de moi
Se rassemblent en silence ;
Le sort envieux avec des malheurs
Me menace à nouveau...
Vais-je garder mon dédain du sort ?
Vais-je rencontrer mon destin
Avec l'intransigeance et l'endurance
De ma fière jeunesse ?

Las de ma vie turbulente,
J'attends impassiblement la tempête :
Mais je peux encore être sauvé
Et trouver un nouvel abri...
Mais anticipant notre séparation,
Ce moment inévitable et effrayant,
Mon ange, j'ai hâte de serrer
Ta main pour la dernière fois

Ange doux et paisible,
Dis-moi doucement adieu.
Deviens triste : lève ou abaisse
Tes tendres yeux ;
Et ton souvenir
Pour mon âme remplacera
La force, la fierté, l'aspiration
Et la bravoure de mes jeunes années.
