Не верь мне друг, когда в избытке горя

Language: Russian (Русский)

Не [верь мне]1 друг, когда в [избытке]2 горя
Я говорю, что разлюбил тебя!
В отлива час не верь измене моря,
Оно к земле воротится, любя.

Уж я тоскую, прежней страсти полный,
[Мою]3 свободу вновь тебе отдам.
И уж бегут [с обратным]4 шумом волны
Издалека к любимым берегам.

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 was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
