Kak velit prostaya uchtivost`,
Podoshel ko mne. Uly'bnulsya,
Polulaskovo, polulenivo
Poceluem ruki kosnulsya.
I zagadochny'x, drevnix likov
Na menya poglyadeli ochi...
Desyat` let zamiranij i krikov,
Vse moi bessonny'e nochi
YA vlozhila v tixoe slovo
I skazala ego naprasno.
Otoshel ty', i stalo snova
Na dushe i pusto i yasno.
