Byt' možet už ne dolgo mne
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Byt' možet, už ne dolgo mne
V izgnan'i mirnom ostavat'sja,
Vzdychat' o miloj starine
I sel'skoj muze v tišine
Dušoj bespečnoj predavat'sja.

No i v dali, v kraju čužom
JA budu mysliju vsegdašnej,
Brodit' Trigorskogo krugom,
V lugach u rečki, [nad]1 cholmom,
V sadu pod sen'ju lip [domašnich]2.

Kogda ž pomerknet jasnyj den',
[S odna]3 iz glubiny mogil'noj,
[Kak]4 inogda v rodnuju sen'
Letit toskujuščaja ten'
Na milych brosit' vzor [umil'nyj]5.
