K portretu
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Kak mal'chik kudrjavyj, rezva,
Narjadna, kak babochka letom;
Znachen'ja pustogo slova 
V ustakh jejo polny privetom.

Jej nravit'sja dolgo nel'zja:
Kak cep', jej nesnosna privychka,
Ona uskol'znet, kak zmeja,
Porkhnet i umchitsja, kak ptichka.

Tait molodoje chelo
Po vole i radost', i gore.
V glazakh, kak na nebe, svetlo,
V dushe jejo tjomno, kak v more!

To istinoj dyshit v nej vsjo,
To vsjo v nej pritvorno i lozhno.
Ponjat' nevozmozhno jejo, 
Zato ne ljubit' ne vozmozhno.
