Moj genij, moj angel, moj drug ('My genius, My Angel, My Friend') (1855) TH 89

Moj genij, moj angel, moj drug ('My genius, My Angel, My Friend')

Ne zdes' li ty ljogkoju ten'ju,
Moj genij, moj angel, moj drug,
Besedujesh' tikho so mnoju
I tikho letajesh' vokrug?
I robkim darish' vdokhnoven'em,
I sladkij vrachujesh' nedug,
I tikhim darish' snoviden'em,
Moj genij, moj angel, moj drug!

My genius, my angel, my friend

Are you not here, like some gentle shade,
My genius, my angel, my friend,
Are you not talking to me quietly,
And quietly circling around?
You bestow wary inspiration,
And heal my sweet ailment,
You tender a quiet dream,
My genius, my angel, my friend!
