Dlja beregov otchizny dal'noj
ty pokidala kraj chuzhoj;
v chas nezabvennyj, v chas pechal'nyj
ja dolgo plakal [pred]1 toboj.

[Moi]2 khladejushchije ruki
[tebja]2 staralis' uderzhat';
tomlen'ja strashnogo razluki
[moj]2 ston molil ne preryvat'.

No ty ot [gor'kogo]3 lobzan'ja
[svoi]2 usta otorvala;
iz kraja [mrachnogo]4 izgnan'ja
ty v kraj inoj menja zvala.

Ty govorila: ,,V [den']5 svidan'ja,
pod nebom vechno golubym,
v teni oliv lyubvi lobzan'ja
my vnov', [moj drug]6, sojedinim.``

No tam, uvy, gde neba svody
sijajut v bleske golubom,
gde pod skalami dremljut vody,
[usnula]7 ty poslednim snom.

Tvoja krasa, tvoi stradan'ja
ischezli v urne grobovoj,
[a s nim]8 i poceluj svidan'ja...
No zhdu jego: on za toboj!
