Vstrepenis', vzmakhni krylami

Language: Russian (Русский)

Vstrepenis', vzmakhni krylami,
Torzhestvuj, o serdce, poj,
Chto oputano setjami
Ty u rozy ognevoj,
Chto ty v seti k nej popalos',
A ne v seti k mudrecam,
Chto ne im vnimat' dostalos'
Divnym pesnjam i slezam;
I khot' slez, s tvojej ljubov'ju,
Ty morja u nej prol'esh'
I iz ran gorjachej krov'ju
Vsjo po kaple izojdesh',
No zato umrjosh' mgnovenno
Vmeste s pesneju svojej
V samyj pyl — kak vdokhnovennyj
Umirajet solovej.

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.
