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.
