O, jesli pravda, chto v nochi,
Kogda pokojatsja zhivye,
I s neba lunnye luchi
Skol'zjat na kamni grobovye,
O, jesli pravda, chto togda
Pustejut tikhije mogily
Ja ten' zovu, ja zhdu Leily:
Ko mne, moj drug, sjuda, sjuda!

Javis', vozljublennaja ten',
Kak ty byla pered razlukoj,
Bledna, khladna, kak zimnij den', 
Iskazhena poslednej mukoj.
Pridi, kak dal'njaja zvezda,
Kak [ljogkij]1 zvuk il' dunoven'e
Il' kak uzhasnoje viden'e,
Mne vsjo ravno: sjuda, sjuda!

Zovu tebja ne dlja togo,
Chtob ukorjat' ljudej, ch'ja zloba
Ubila druga mojego,
Il' chtob izvedat' tajny groba,
Ne dlja togo, chto inogda
Somnen'em muchus' no, toskuja,
Khochu skazat', chto vsjo ljublju ja,
Chto vsjo ja tvoj. Sjuda, sjuda!
