Primiren'e ('Reconciliation') (1875) Op. 25 no. 1

Primiren'e ('Reconciliation')

O, zasni, mojo serdce, gluboko!
Ne budi: - ne probudish', chto bylo,
Ne zovi, chto umchalos' daljoko,
Ne ljubi, chto ty prezhde ljubilo...
Pust' nadezhdoj i lzhivoj mechtoj
Ne smutitsja tvoj son i pokoj!
Dlja tebja nevozvratno byloje,
Na grjadushcheje net upovan'ja...
Ty ne znalo v blazhenstve pokoja,
Uspokojsja zh na lozhe stradan'ja,
I starajsja ne pomnit' zimoj,
Kak sryvalo ty rozy vesnoj!

Primiren'e ('Reconciliation')

Oh sleep, my heart, sleep deeply!
Do not try to wake the past,
Do not summon what has fled far away,
Do not love what you once loved…
Let not hope and vain dreams
Trouble your sleep and rest!
You cannot bring back the past,
And the future holds no consolation…
Bliss offered you no restfulness,
So take solace on the couch of suffering,
And try not to recall in winter,
How you gathered roses in spring!
