V chasy' otradnoj tishiny'
Ne znayut sna pechal`ny' ochi;
I prizrak miloj stariny'
Tesnitsya v grud` so mrakom nochi;

I zhivy' v pamyati moej
Vesel`e, slezy' yuny'x dnej,
Vsya prelest`, lozh` lyubovny'x snov,
I tajny'x vstrech, i nezhny'x slov,
I te krasy', kotory'x czvet
Ubit grozoj - i zdes` uzh net!
I skol`ko radostny'x serdecz
Blazhenstvu videli konecz!

Tak prezhnee nochnoj poroyu
   Moyu volnuet grud`,
I dumy', szhaty'e toskoyu,
   Meshayut mne usnut`.
Smotryu li vdal` - odni pechali;
Smotryu l` krugom - moix druzej,
Kak zhelty'j list osennix dnej,
Meteli burny'e umchali.

Mne mnitsya: s pasmurny'm chelom
Xozhu v pokoe ya pustom,
V kotorom prezhde ya by'val,
Gde ya vesely'j piroval;
No uzh ogni pogasheny',
Girlyandy' snyaty' so steny',
Davno raz``exalis` druz`ya,
I v nem odin ostalsya ya.

I prezhnee nochnoj poroyu
   Moyu volnuet grud`,
I dumy', szhaty'e toskoyu,
   Meshayut mne usnut`!
