Пушкин и Лермонтов

Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Здесь Пушкина изгнанье началось
И Лермонтова кончилось изгнанье.
Здесь горных трав легко благоуханье,
И только раз мне видеть удалось
У озера, в густой тени чинары,
В тот предвечерний и жестокий час —
Сияние неутолённых глаз
Бессмертного любовника Тамары.

Pouchkine et Lermontov
Language: French (Français)  after the Russian (Русский) 
Ici l'exil de Pouchkine a commencé
Et Lermontov a terminé le sien.
Ici sont les doux parfums des herbes de la montagne,
Et une seule fois j'ai pu voir
Au bord du lac, à l'ombre dense des platanes,
À l'heure cruelle de la fin d'après-midi --
L'éclat de son œil inassouvi, 
L'amant éternel de Tamara.
