Меня ты в толпе не узнала

Available translation(s): ENG FRE GER GER
Меня ты в толпе не узнала,
Твой взгляд не сказал ничего.
Но чудно и страшно мне стало,
Когда уловил я его.

То было одно лишь мгновенье,
Но, верь мне, я в нём перенёс
Всей прошлой любви наслажденье
Всю горечь забвенья и слёз!

In der Menge
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Russian (Русский) 
Mich hast du in der Menge nicht erkannt,
dein Blick sagte nichts.
Aber mir wurde wunderbar und schrecklich,
als ich ihn erhaschte.

Das war nur ein Moment,
aber glaub mir, in ihm durchlebte
ich alle Freuden vergangener Liebe,
die ganze Bitterkeit des Vergessens und der Tränen.
