Ja ljubila ego

Language: Russian (Русский)

Ja ljubila ego 
Žarče dnja i ognja,
Kak [drugie ljubit'
Ne smogut nikogda!]1

Tol'ko s nim liš' odnim 
JA na svete žila;
Emu dušu moju, 
Emu žizn' otdala!

Čto za noč', za luna, 
Kogda druga ja ždu!
[I]2 bledna, cholodna, 
Zamiraju, drožu!

Vot [on idët]3, poët: 
,,Gde ty zor'ka moja?``
Vot on ruku berët, 
Vot celuet menja!

,,Milyj drug, pogasi
Pocelui tvoi!
I bez nich pri tebe 
Ogn' pylaet v krovi;

I bez nich pri tebe 
[Žgët]4 rumjanec lico,
I volnuetsja grud' 
[I kipit gorjačo!]5

I blistajut glaza
[Lučezarnoj zvezdoj!``
JA žila dlja nego --
JA ljubila dušoj!]6
