by Ivan Alekseyevich Bunin (1870 - 1953)

Neugasimaya lampada
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Ona [molchit]1, ona teper` spokojna.
No radost` ne vernyotsya k nej: v tot den`,
Kogda ego mogilu zakidali
Sy'roj zemlyoj, prostilas` s neyu radost`.

Ona molchit, — eyo dusha teper`
Pusta, kak namogil`naya chasovnya,
Gde nad nemoj grobnicej den` i noch`
Gorit neugasimaya lampada.
