Den' li carit
Den' li carit, tishina li nochnaja,
V snakh li [trevozhnykh]1, v zhitejskoj bor'be,
Vsjudu so mnoj, moju zhizn' napolnjaja,
Duma vse ta zhe, odna rokovaja,
Vsjo o tebe!
S neju ne strashen mne prizrak bylogo,
Serdce vosprjanulo snova ljubja...
Vera, mechty, vdokhnovennoje slovo,
Vsjo, chto v dushe dorogogo, svjatogo,
Vsjo ot tebja!
Budut li dni moji jasny, unyly,
Skoro li sginu ja, zhizn' zagubja!
Znaju odno, chto do samoj mogily
Pomysly, chuvstva, i pesni, i sily,
Vsjo dlja tebja!

Notes about green, red, and white dots
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary

the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors.
