by Ivan Alekseyevich Bunin (1870 - 1953)

Kak vsyo spokojno
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Kak vsyo spokojno i kak vsyo otkry'to!
Kak na zemle stalo tixo i bedno!
Sad osy'paetsya, - vse v nyom zaby'to,
Nebo veliko i xolodno-bledno...

Nebo dalekoe, ne ty' li, nemoe,
Menya pugaesh` svoim prostorom?
Zdes`, v e`toj bednosti, gde vse rodnoe,
Vstrechu ya osen` radostny'm vzorom.

Eshhyo rasseyan ogon` listopada,
I redkie kraski laskovo-yarki;
Eshhyo sinicy' svishhut iz sada,
I kak im tixo v zaby'tom parke!

I tol`ko noch`yu, kogda bushuet
Osennij veter, vse chuzhdo snova...
I odinokoe serdce toskuet:
O, esli by' blizost` serdcza rodnogo.
