by Ivan Alekseyevich Bunin (1870 - 1953)

Po vechernej zare
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Zasineli, temnejut ravniny...
Daleko, daleko v tishine
Kolokol'chik pojot, zamiraja...
Mne grustnej i bol'neje vdvojne.

Vot uzh zvuk jego plachet chut' slyshno;
Vot i pyl' nad prostorom nemym,
Po shirokoj pustynnoj doroge,
Opuskajas', temnejet, kak dym...

No dusha jeshchjo zhdet i toskujet...
O, zachem ty i noch'ju i dnem
Vspominajesh'sja mne tak prizyvno?
Otchego ty vezde i vo vsem?

Vsled zare, ukhodjashchej k zakatu,
Umirajushchim zvukam vosled
Posylaju tebe moju dushu –
Moj pechal'nyj i nezhnyj privet!
