Čto vam slova ljubvi?

Čto vam slova ljubvi?
Vy bredom nazovëte.
Čto slëzy vam moi?
I slëz vy ne pojmëte.

Ostav'te ž mne mečty.
Ni slovom i ni vzgljadom
Serdečnoj teploty
Ne otravljajte jadom.

Ljublju eë odnu,
Kak žizn' moju,
Kak svet, ljublju,
Ljublju, kak tišinu
Moich očarovanij,
Ot zloj ljudskoj tolpy
JA v dal' nemuju rvusja
I k nej na kryl'jach dum
Dalëko unošusja!
