Schweigen

Language: German

Kein Wort und keinen Hauch --
Wir wollen schweigen.
Die Trauerweiden, die sich neigen
Auf Leichensteine, schweigen auch.

Sie neigen sich und lesen,
Wie ich auf deinen Wangen:
Es ist ein Glück gewesen
Und ist vorbei gegangen.

Ni slova, o drug moj

Language: Russian

Ni slova, o drug moj, ni vzdokha...
My budem s toboj molchalivy...
Ved' molcha nad kamnem mogil'nym
Sklonjajutsja grustnyje ivy...

I tol'ko, sklonivshis', chitajut,
Kak ja v tvojom [vzore]1 ustalom,
Chto byli dni jasnogo schast'ja...
Chto `etogo schast'ja -- ne stalo!
