Minula strast`, i py'l eyo trevozhny'j Uzhe ne muchit serdcza moego, No razlyubit` tebya mne nevozmozhno! Vsyo, chto ne ty' - tak suetno, tak lozhno, Vsyo, chto ne ty' - besczvetno i mertvo. Bez povoda i prava negoduya, Uzh ne kipit buntuyushhaya krov`, No s poshloj zhizn`yu slit`sya ne mogu ya, Moya lyubov`, o drug, i ne revnuya, Ostalas` ta zhe prezhnyaya lyubov`.
