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!

Ночевала тучка золотая

Language: Russian (Русский)

Ночевала тучка золотая
На груди утёса-великана;
Утром в путь она умчалась рано,
По лазури весело играя.

Но остался влажный след в морщине
Старого утёса. Одиноко
Он стоит; задумался глубоко,
И тихонько плачет он в пустыне...

Eine Wolke ließ beim Glanz der Sterne

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

Eine Wolke ließ beim Glanz der Sterne
Nachts [an]1 hoher Felsenbrust sich nieder,
Als der Morgen anbrach, zog sie wieder
Fröhlich fürbaß in die blaue Ferne.

Doch es blieb die feuchte Spur
Eingefurcht dem alten Fersen,
[Einsam schaut er]2 auf die Flur
Trüb versenkt in tiefes [Sinnen]3,
Und ein Thränenstrom entquillt 
Seiner [Stirn]4...
