Language: Russian (Русский) 
Vchera, uvenchana dushisty'mi czvetami,
Smotrela dolgo ty' v zerkal`noe okno
Na nebo sinee, gorevshee zvezdami,
V alleyu topolej s drozhashhimi listami, —
V alleyu, gde vdali tak strashno i temno.

Zaby'la, mozhet by't`, ty' za soboyu v zale
I yarkij blesk svechej i nezhny'e slova…
Kogda pomchalsya val`s i struny' rokotali, —
YA videl — vsya v czvetax, ispolnena pechali,
K plechu slegka tvoya sklonilas` golova.

Ne dumala li ty': «Von tam, v besedke dal`noj,
Na mramornoj skam`e teper` on zhdyot menya
Pod sumrakom derev, revnivy'j i pechal`ny'j;
On vzory' utomil, smotrya na vixor` bal`ny'j,
I lovit ten` moyu v siyanii ognya».
