by Ivan Alekseyevich Bunin (1870 - 1953)

Kak vsjo spokojno
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Kak vsjo spokojno i kak vsjo otkryto!
Kak na zemle stalo tikho i bedno!
Sad osypajetsja, - vse v njom zabyto,
Nebo veliko i kholodno-bledno...

Nebo dalekoje, ne ty li, nemoje,
Menja pugajesh' svoim prostorom?
Zdes', v `etoj bednosti, gde vse rodnoje,
Vstrechu ja osen' radostnym vzorom.

Jeshchjo rassejan ogon' listopada,
I redkije kraski laskovo-jarki;
Jeshchjo sinicy svishchut iz sada,
I kak im tikho v zabytom parke!

I tol'ko noch'ju, kogda bushujet
Osennij veter, vse chuzhdo snova...
I odinokoje serdce toskujet:
O, jesli by blizost' serdca rodnogo.
