Pastushka

Language: Russian

S pjatnadcatoj vesnoju, 
Kak lilija s zareju,
Krasavica cvetjot.
Vsjo, vsjo v nej ocharovan'je!
I tomnoje dykhan'je,
I vzorov tomnyj svet,
I grudi trepeta n'je,
I rozy nezhnyj cvet.
Vsjo junost' izmenjajet.
Uzh Lilu ne plenjajet 
Vesjolyj khorovod;
Odna u sonnykh vod,
V lesakh ona tajitsja,
Vzdykhajet i tomitsja,
A s neju tam `Erot.

Kogda zhe, noch'ju tjomnoj,
Jejo v posteli skromnoj
Zastanet tikhij son,
V polunochnom molchan'ji,
Pri mesjachnom sijan'ji,
Sletajet Kupidon;
S Volshebnoju mechtoju
I s tikhoju toskoju
Ispolnit serdce on
I Lila v snoviden'ji
Vkushajet naslazhden'je
I shepchet: o Filon!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
