Slyozy' umileniya
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Esli b slezy' umileniya
Vorotit` ya mog sebe,
YA sterpel by' vse mucheniya,
YA smeyalsya by' sud`be.
Esli b tak, kak v rannej mladosti,
YA otplakivat`syamog!
Slezy', slezy'! skol`ko sladosti
Posy'lal mne s vami bog!

Pomnyu, pomnyu!.. Nochi cely'e
YA proplakival v tishi,
Gasli svechi nagorely'e,
No ne gas ogon` dushi.
Gde zh vy', deti umileniya,
Ran celen`e v bure bitv,
Xleb dushi v mig prosvetleniya,
Sol` by'ly'x moix molitv!

Gde vy'? Grud`, kak step` goryachaya,
Nakalilas` znoem bed;
YA drozhu, kak ten` xodyachaya,
YA ishhu... chego uzh net!..
Esli b slezy' umileniya
Vorotit` ya mog sebe,
YA sterpel by' vse mucheniya,
YA smeyalsya by' sud`be!
