Cherny'j vecher
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Cherny'j vecher.
Bely'j sneg.
Veter, veter!
Na nogax ne stoit chelovek.
Veter, veter —
Na vsem bozh`em svete!

Zavivaet veter
Bely'j snezhok.
Pod snezhkom — ledok.
Skol`zko, tyazhko,
Vsyakij xodok
Skol`zit — ax, bednyazhka!

Ot zdaniya k zdaniyu
Protyanut kanat.
Na kanate — plakat:
«Vsya vlast` Uchreditel`nomu Sobraniyu!»
Starushka ubivaetsya — plachet,
Nikak ne pojmet, chto znachit,
Na chto takoj plakat,
Takoj ogromny'j loskut?
Skol`ko by' vy'shlo portyanok dlya rebyat,
A vsyakij — razdet, razut…

Starushka, kak kuricza,
Koj-kak peremotnulas` cherez sugrob.
— Ox, Matushka-Zastupnicza!
— Ox, bol`sheviki zagonyat v grob!

Veter xlestkij!
Ne otstaet i moroz!
I burzhuj na perekrestke
V vorotnik upryatal nos.

A e`to kto? — Dlinny'e volosy'
I govorit vpolgolosa:
— Predateli!
— Pogibla Rossiya!
Dolzhno by't`, pisatel` —
Vitiya…

A von i dolgopoly'j —
Storonkoj — za sugrob…
Chtó ny'nche nevesely'j,
Tovarishh pop?

Pomnish`, kak by'valo
Bryuxom shel vpered,
I krestom siyalo
Bryuxo na narod?..

Von bary'nya v karakule
K drugoj podvernulas`:
— Uzh` my' plakali, plakali…
Poskol`znulas`
I — bacz — rastyanulas`!

Aj, aj!
Tyani, pody'maj!

Veter vesely'j
I zol, i rad.
Krutit podoly',
Proxozhix kósit,
Rvet, mnet i nosit
Bol`shoj plakat:
«Vsya vlast` Uchreditel`nomu Sobraniyu»…
I slova donosit:

…I u nas by'lo sobranie…
…Vot v e`tom zdanii…
…Obsudili —
Postanovili:
Na vremya — desyat`, ná noch` — dvadczat` pyat`…
…I men`she — ni s kogo ne brat`…
…Pojdem spat`…

Pozdnij vecher.
Pusteet ulicza.
Odin brodyaga
Sutulitsya,
Da svishhet veter…

E`j, bednyaga!
Podxodi —
Poceluemsya…

Xleba!
Chtó vperedi?
Proxodi!

Chernoe, chernoe nebo.

Zloba, grustnaya zloba
Kipit v grudi…
Chernaya zloba, svyataya zloba…

Tovarishh! Glyadi
V oba!
