by Ivan Ivanovich Kozlov (1779 - 1840)

Bessonnica
Language: Russian (Русский) 
V chasy otradnoj tishiny
Ne znajut sna pechal'ny ochi;
I prizrak miloj stariny
Tesnitsja v grud' so mrakom nochi;

I zhivy v pamjati mojej
Vesel'e, slezy junykh dnej,
Vsja prelest', lozh' ljubovnykh snov,
I tajnykh vstrech, i nezhnykh slov,
I te krasy, kotorykh cvet
Ubit grozoj - i zdes' uzh net!
I skol'ko radostnykh serdec
Blazhenstvu videli konec!

Tak prezhneje nochnoj poroju
   Moju volnujet grud',
I dumy, szhatye toskoju,
   Meshajut mne usnut'.
Smotrju li vdal' - odni pechali;
Smotrju l' krugom - moikh druzej,
Kak zheltyj list osennikh dnej,
Meteli burnye umchali.

Mne mnitsja: s pasmurnym chelom
Khozhu v pokoje ja pustom,
V kotorom prezhde ja byval,
Gde ja veselyj piroval;
No uzh ogni pogasheny,
Girljandy snjaty so steny,
Davno raz"ekhalis' druz'ja,
I v nem odin ostalsja ja.

I prezhneje nochnoj poroju
   Moju volnujet grud',
I dumy, szhatye toskoju,
   Meshajut mne usnut'!
