K portretu
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Kak mal`chik kudryavy'j, rezva,
Naryadna, kak babochka letom;
Znachen`ya pustogo slova 
V ustax eyo polny' privetom.

Ej nravit`sya dolgo nel`zya:
Kak cep`, ej nesnosna privy'chka,
Ona uskol`znet, kak zmeya,
Porxnet i umchitsya, kak ptichka.

Tait molodoe chelo
Po vole i radost`, i gore.
V glazax, kak na nebe, svetlo,
V dushe eyo tyomno, kak v more!

To istinoj dy'shit v nej vsyo,
To vsyo v nej pritvorno i lozhno.
Ponyat` nevozmozhno eyo, 
Zato ne lyubit` ne vozmozhno.
