Vchera, uvenchana dushistymi cvetami
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Vchera, uvenchana dushistymi cvetami,
Smotrela dolgo ty v zerkal'noje okno
Na nebo sineje, gorevsheje zvezdami,
V alleju topolej s drozhashchimi listami, —
V alleju, gde vdali tak strashno i temno.

Zabyla, mozhet byt', ty za soboju v zale
I jarkij blesk svechej i nezhnye slova…
Kogda pomchalsja val's i struny rokotali, —
Ja videl — vsja v cvetakh, ispolnena pechali,
K plechu slegka tvoja sklonilas' golova.

Ne dumala li ty: «Von tam, v besedke dal'noj,
Na mramornoj skam'e teper' on zhdjot menja
Pod sumrakom derev, revnivyj i pechal'nyj;
On vzory utomil, smotrja na vikhor' bal'nyj,
I lovit ten' moju v sijanii ognja».
