Nam zviozdi krotkie siali, 'Gentle stars were shining upon us' (1886) Op. 60 no.12

Nam zviozdi krotkie siali, 'Gentle stars were shining upon us'

Nam zviozdi krotkie siali,
chut' vejal tikhij veterok,
krugom cvety blagoukhali,
i volny laskovo zhurchali
u nashikh nog.
My byli juny, my ljubili,
i s veroj v dal' smotreli my;
v nas grjozy raduzhnye zhili,
i nam ne strashny v'jugi byli
sedoj zimy.
Gde zh `eti nochi s ikh sijan'em,
s blagoukhajushchej krasoj
i voln tainstvennym zhurchan'jem,
nadezhd, vostorzhjonnykh mechtanij
gde svetlyj roj?
Pomerkli zvjozdy, i unylo
ponikli bleklye cvety...
Kogda zh, o serdce, vse, chto bylo,
chto nam vesna s toboj darila,
zabudesh' ty?
