Okonchen prazdny'j, shumny'j den`

Language: Russian (Русский)

Okonchen prazdny'j, shumny'j den`;
Lyudskaya zhizn`, umolknuv, dremlet.
Vse tixo. Majskoj nochi ten` 
Stoliczu spyashhuyu ob``emlet.

No son ot glaz moix bezhit,
I pri luchax inoj dennicy'
Voobrazhenie vertit
Godov utrachenny'x stranicy'.

Kak budto vnov`, vdy'xaya yad
Vesennix, strastny'x snovidennij,
V dushe ya voskreshayu ryad
Nadezhd, pory'vov, zabluzhdenij...

Uvy', to prizraki odni!
Mne skuchno s mertvoj ix tolpoyu,
I shum ix staroj boltovni
Uzhe ne vlasten nado mnoyu.

Lish` ten` odna iz vsex tenej
Yavilas` mne, dy'sha lyubov`yu,
I, verny'j drug minuvshix dnej,
Sklonilas` tixo k izgolov`yu.

I smelo otdal ej odnoj
Vsyu dushu ya v sleze bezmolvnoj,
Nikem nezrimoj, schast`ya polnoj...
V sleze, davno xranimoj mnoj!
