`Elegija
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Bezumnykh let ugassheje vesel'e
mne tjazhelo, kak smutnoje pokhmel'e.
No kak vino pechal' minuvshikh dnej
v mojej dushe chem stare, tem sil'nej.
Moj put' unyl. Sulit mne trud i gore
grjadushchego volnujemoje more.

No ne khochu, o drugi, umirat'!
Ja zhit' khochu, chtob myslit' i stradat'.
I vedaju, mne budut naslazhden'ja
mezh gorestej, zabot i trevolnen'ja;
Poroj opjat' garmonijej up'jus',
nad vymyslom slezami obol'jus'.
I mozhet byt', na moj zakat pechal'nyj
blesnet ljubov' ulybkoju proshchal'noj.
