Ya segodnya ne pomnyu, chto by'lo vchera
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Ya segodnya ne pomnyu, chto by'lo vchera,
Po utram zaby'vayu svoi vechera,
V bely'j den` zaby'vayu ogni,
Po nocham zaby'vayu dni.

No vse nochi i dni naply'vayut na nas
Pered smert`yu, v torzhestvenny'j chas.
I togda — v duxote, v tesnote
     Slishkom bol`no mechtat`
        O by'loj krasote
           I ne moch`:
     Xochesh` vstat` —
           I noch`.
