by Ivan Alekseyevich Bunin (1870 - 1953)

Neugasimaja lampada
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Ona [molčit]1, ona teper' spokojna.
No radost' ne vernëtsja k nej: v tot den',
Kogda ego mogilu zakidali
Syroj zemlëj, prostilas' s neju radost'.

Ona molčit, — eë duša teper'
Pusta, kak namogil'naja časovnja,
Gde nad nemoj grobnicej den' i noč'
Gorit neugasimaja lampada.
