Тебя так любят все
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Тебя так любят все; один твой тихий вид
Всех делает добрей и с жизнию мирит,
Но ты грустна, в тебе есть скрытое мученье,
В душе твоей звучит какой-то приговор;
Зачем твой ласковый всегда так робок взор,
И очи грустныя так молят о прощеньи,
Как будто солнца свет, и вешние цветы,
И тень в полдневный зной, и шопот по дубравам,
И даже воздух тот, которым дышишь ты,
Все кажется тебе стяжанием неправым?

Everyone loves you so
Language: English  after the Russian (Русский) 
Everyone loves you so; even your gentle appearance 
Makes everybody happier and reconciles them with life, 
But you are sombre, there is a hidden torment within you, 
Some sort of doom resounds within your soul;
Why is your tender glance always so timid,
And your melancholy eyes beg for forgiveness, 
As if the light of the sun, and spring flowers, 
And a shadow in the midday heat, and the rustling in the oak woods, 
And even the air that you breathe - 
All seems to you an unworthy cause?
