Сжала руки под тёмной вуалью

Language: Russian (Русский)

Сжала руки под тёмной вуалью...
«Отчего ты сегодня бледна?»
— Оттого, что я терпкой печалью
Напоила его допьяна.

Как забуду? Он вышел, шатаясь,
Искривился мучительно рот...
Я сбежала, перил не касаясь,
Я бежала за ним до ворот.

Задыхаясь, я крикнула: «Шутка
Всё, что было. Уйдёшь, я умру».
Улыбнулся спокойно и жутко
И сказал мне: «Не стой на ветру».

Les mains jointes sous le voile sombre

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

Les mains jointes sous le voile sombre ...
« Pourquoi es-tu pâle aujourd'hui ? »
-- Parce que d'une amère douleur
Je lui ai fait boire jusqu'à l'ivresse.

Comment oublier ? Il est sorti, chancelant,
La bouche tordue par la douleur...
J'ai me suis précipitée, sans toucher la rampe,
J'ai couru après lui jusqu'à la porte.

À bout de souffle, j'ai crié : « C'est une plaisanterie,
Tout ce qui est arrivé. Si tu pars, je meurs ».
Il sourit paisible et terrible,
Et me dit : « Ne reste pas dans le vent ».
