by Ivan Alekseyevich Bunin (1870 - 1953)

Chuzhaja
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Ty chuzhaja, no ljubish',
Ljubish' tol'ko menja.
Ty menja ne zabudesh'
Do poslednego dnja.

Ty pokorno i skromno
Shla za nim ot venca.
No lico ty sklonila –
On ne videl lica.

Ty s nim zhenshchinoj stala,
No ne devushka l' ty?
Skol'ko v kazhdom dvizhen'e
Prostoty, krasoty!

Budut snova izmeny...
No odin tol'ko raz
Tak zastenchivo svetit
Nezhnost' ljubjashchikh glaz.

Ty i skryt' ne umejesh',
Chto jemu ty chuzhda...
Ty menja ne zabudesh'
Nikogda, nikogda!
