[Smerkalos';]1 zharkij den' blednel neulovimo.
Nad ozerom tuman tjanulsja polosoj,
I krotkij obraz tvoj, znakomyj i ljubimyj,
V vechernij tikhij chas nosilsja predo mnoj.

Ulybka ta zh byla, kotoruju ljublju ja,
I mjagkaja kosa, kak prezhde, rasplelas',
I ochi grustnye, poprezhnemu toskuja,
Gljadeli na menja v vechernij tikhij chas.
