Ottogo moja arfa bezmolvna visit,
čto plita grobovaja serdce ležit,
čto izranen ja ves' i bessilen moj gnev,
i zvučal by, kak plač pochoron, moj napev.

No pridët on, ja ždu, vdochnovennyj prorok,
na čele ego budet ternovyj venok,
na rukach i nogach - nepovinnaja krov',
a ne veščich ustach - pesn' pro žizn' i ljubov'.
