Znoj ‑ i vsyo v tomitel`nom pokoe
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Znoj - i vsyo v tomitel`nom pokoe -
V pyatnax sveta teni spyat v allee... 
Tol`ko chutkoj chuditsya lilee,
Chto groza taitsya v e`tom znoe. 

Blednaya, ponikla u balkona -
Zhdyot grozy',- i grezitsya ej, bednoj,
Chto dalekoj buri prizrak bledny'j
Stal temnet` v lazuri nebosklona... 

Gryozy' leta kazhutsya ej by'l`yu,-
Groz i bur` ona eshhyo ne znaet,
Zhdyot... zovyot... i zhutko zamiraet,
Zolotoj osy'pannaya py'l`yu...
