Twelve Romances (Op. 14)

V moyey dushe

V mojej dushe ljubov' voskhodit,
Kak solnce, v bleske krasoty,
I pesni strojnyja rozhdajet,
Kak aromatnye cvety.
V mojej dushe tvoj vzor kholodnyj
To solnce znojnoje zazheg.
Akh, jesli-b ja tem znojnym solncem
Zazhech' tvoj vzor kholodnyj mog.

Within my soul

Within my soul love ascends,
Like the sun in its radiant beauty,
And brings forth harmonious songs,
Like perfumed flowers.
In my soul your cold gaze
Sets the scorching sun ablaze.
Ah, if only I could make that scorching sun
Set your cold gaze ablaze!
