by Heinrich Heine (1797 - 1856)
Translation by Apollon Nikolayevich Maykov (1821 - 1897)

Давно задумчивый твой образ
Language: Russian (Русский)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Давно задумчивый твой образ,
Как сон, носился предо мной,
Всё с той же кроткою улыбкой,
Но — бледный, бледный и больной —
Одни уста ещё алеют,
Но прикоснётся смерть и к ним
И всё небесное угасит
В очах лобзаньем ледяным.
