by Fyodor Nikolayevich Glinka (1786 - 1880)

Sljozy umilenija
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Jesli b slezy umilenija
Vorotit' ja mog sebe,
Ja sterpel by vse muchenija,
Ja smejalsja by sud'be.
Jesli b tak, kak v rannej mladosti,
Ja otplakivat'sjamog!
Slezy, slezy! skol'ko sladosti
Posylal mne s vami bog!

Pomnju, pomnju!.. Nochi celye
Ja proplakival v tishi,
Gasli svechi nagorelye,
No ne gas ogon' dushi.
Gde zh vy, deti umilenija,
Ran celen'e v bure bitv,
Khleb dushi v mig prosvetlenija,
Sol' bylykh moikh molitv!

Gde vy? Grud', kak step' gorjachaja,
Nakalilas' znojem bed;
Ja drozhu, kak ten' khodjachaja,
Ja ishchu... chego uzh net!..
Jesli b slezy umilenija
Vorotit' ja mog sebe,
Ja sterpel by vse muchenija,
Ja smejalsja by sud'be!
