by Nikolay Vasil'yevich Berg (1824 - 1884)

Zhaloba devy
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Jesli b, serdce, ty lezhalo
Na rukakh moikh,
Vsjo kachala by, kachala
Ja tebja na nikh!

Budto mat' ditja rodnoje,
S tikhoju mol'boj,
I zasnulo b, retivoje,
Ty peredo mnoj!

A teper', v grudi sokryto,
Zaperto v tjur'mu,
Ty dostupno, ty otkryto
Odnomu jemu!

No ne vidit on pechali.
Kak zhe s `etim byt'?
Pozabyt' jego? Jedva li
Mozhno pozabyt'.

Mchatsja gody, grust' vsjo ta zhe,
Te zhe vsjo mechty.
Serdce! Serdce! da kogda zhe
Zdes' umolknesh' ty?
