Угасшим звездам

Language: Russian (Русский)

Долго ль внимать мне мерцание ваше,
синего неба пытливые очи?
Долго ли чуять, что выше и краше 
вас ничего нет во храмине ночи?

Может быть, нет вас под теми огнями,
давняя вас погасила эпоха...
Так и по смерти лететь к вам стихами,
к призракам звёзд, буду призракам вздоха.
