Kak velit prostaja uchtivost',
Podoshel ko mne. Ulybnulsja,
Polulaskovo, polulenivo
Pocelujem ruki kosnulsja.
I zagadochnykh, drevnikh likov
Na menja pogljadeli ochi...
Desjat' let zamiranij i krikov,
Vse moi bessonnye nochi
Ja vlozhila v tikhoje slovo
I skazala jego naprasno.
Otoshel ty, i stalo snova
Na dushe i pusto i jasno.
