Dovol'nyj chelovek

Language: Russian

Po ulice stolicy mchitsja vpripryzhku molodoj jeshchjo chelovek. 
Jego dvizhen'ja vesely, bojki; glaza sijajut, ukhmyljajutsja guby, 
prijatno alejet umiljonnoje lico… On ves' — dovol'stvo i radost'.

Chto s nim sluchilos'? Dostalos' li jemu nasledstvo? 
Povysili li jego chinom? Speshit li on na ljubovnoje svidan'e? 
Ili prosto on khorosho pozavtrakal, i chuvstvo zdorov'ja, 
chuvstvo sytoj sily vzygralo vo vsekh jego chlenakh? 
Uzh ne vozlozhili li na jego sheju tvoj krasivyj os'miugol'nyj krest, 
o pol'skij korol' Stanislav!

Net. On sochinil klevetu na znakomogo, 
rasprostranil jejo tshchatel'no, uslyshal jejo, 
`etu samuju klevetu, iz ust drugogo znakomogo — i sam jej poveril.

O, kak dovolen, kak dazhe dobr v `etu minutu `etot milyj, 
mnogoobeshchajushchij molodoj chelovek!

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.
