`Elegija
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Kogda, dusha, prosilas' ty
Pogibnut' il' ljubit',
Kogda zhelan'ja i mechty
V tebe tesnilis' zhit',
Kogda jeshchjo ja ne pil sljoz
Iz chashi bytija,
Zachem togda v venke iz roz
K tenjam ne otbyl ja!

Zachem vy nachertalis' tak
Na pamjati mojej,
Jedinoj molodosti znak,
Vy, pesni proshlykh dnej!
Ja gory, doly i lesa,
I milyj vzgljad zabyl;
Zachem zhe vashi golosa
Mne slukh moj sokhranil!

Ne vozvratite schast'ja mne,
Khot' dyshit v vas ono!
S nim v promel'knuvshej starine
Prostilsja ja davno.
Ne narushajte zh, ja molju,
Vy sna dushi mojej;
I slova strashnogo ljublju
Ne povtorjajte jej!
