Medlitel'no vlekutsja dni moi,
I každyj mig v [unylom]1 serdce množit
Vsë goresti nesčastlivoj ljubvi            
[I vse mečty bezumija]2 trevožit.

No ja molču; ne slyšen ropot moj;
JA slëzy l'ju; mne slëzy utešen'e;
Moja duša, [plenennaja]3 toskoj,
V nich gor'koe nachodit naslažden'e.

O žizni [čas]4, leti, ne žal' tebja,
Isčezni v t'me, pustoe prividen'e;
Mne dorogo ljubvi moej mučen'e;
Puskaj umru, no pust' umru, ljubja!
