by Anton Antonovich Delvig (1798 - 1831)

E`legiya
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Kogda, dusha, prosilas` ty'
Pogibnut` il` lyubit`,
Kogda zhelan`ya i mechty'
V tebe tesnilis` zhit`,
Kogda eshhyo ya ne pil slyoz
Iz chashi by'tiya,
Zachem togda v venke iz roz
K tenyam ne otby'l ya!

Zachem vy' nachertalis` tak
Na pamyati moej,
Edinoj molodosti znak,
Vy', pesni proshly'x dnej!
YA gory', doly' i lesa,
I mily'j vzglyad zaby'l;
Zachem zhe vashi golosa
Mne slux moj soxranil!

Ne vozvratite schast`ya mne,
Xot` dy'shit v vas ono!
S nim v promel`knuvshej starine
Prostilsya ya davno.
Ne narushajte zh, ya molyu,
Vy' sna dushi moej;
I slova strashnogo lyublyu
Ne povtoryajte ej!
