Isstuplenije
Language: Russian (Русский) 
Dukhi neba, dajte mne
Kryl'ja sokola skorej!
Ja v polnochnoj tishine
Polechu v ob"jat'ja k nej!

Sladostrastnymi rukami
Krugom shei obov'jus',
Jejo chjornymi glazami
Zaljubujus', zagljazhus'!

Bezzabotno k grudi polnoj,
Kak pchela k cvetku, pril'nu,
Sladostrast'em [usyplennoj]1,
Besprobudno ja zasnu.
