Na zemlju sumrak pal

Language: Russian

Na zemlju sumrak pal; ne shelokhnut kusty;
Svernulis' liliji poblekshije listy,
I tikho ozero pochilo.
Pod obajanijem volshebnoj krasoty,
Stoju zadumavshis': «Chto grusten nynche ty,
I vsjo krugom tebja unylo?»
Poutru prikhozhu: [rosoj ozhivlena]1,
Prosnulas' lilija, [roskoshna i pyshna]2
I milaja, v blistajushchej odezhde.
S ulybkoju [privet na nebo shlet ona.]3
I pleshchet v ozere veselaja volna...4
[Ja grusten]5, kak i prezhde!
