When to the sessions of sweet silent thought
I summon up remembrance of things past,
I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought,
And with old woes new wail my dear time's waste:
Then can I drown an eye, unused to flow,
For precious friends hid in death's dateless night,
And weep afresh love's long since cancell'd woe,
And moan the expense of many a vanish'd sight:
Then can I grieve at grievances foregone,
And heavily from woe to woe tell o'er
The sad account of fore-bemoaned moan,
Which I new pay as if not paid before.
  But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,
  All losses are restored and sorrows end.

Когда на суд безмолвных, тайных дум
Language: Russian (Русский)  after the English 
Когда на суд безмолвных, тайных дум
Я вызываю голоса былого, -
Утраты все приходят мне на ум
И старой болью я болею снова. 
Из глаз, не знавших слёз, я слёзы лью
О тех, кого во тьме таит могила,
Ищу любовь погибшую свою
И все, что в жизни мне казалось мило
Веду я счёт потерянному мной
И ужасаюсь вновь потере каждой,
И вновь плачу я дорогой ценой
За то, за что платил уже однажды! 
Но прошлое ыа нахожу в тебе
И все готов простить своей судьбе.
