Bednyj pevec


O krasnyj mir, gde ja votshche rascvel,
prosti navek! S obmanutoj dushoju
ja schast'ja zhdal - mechtam konec;
pogiblo vse, umolkni, lira;
skorej, skorej v obitel' mira,
bednyj pevec, bednyj pevec!

Chto zhizn', kogda v nej net ocharovan'ja?
Blazhenstvo znat', k nemu letet' dushoj,
no propast' zret' mezh nim i mezh soboj;
zhelat' vsjak chas i trepetat' zhelan'ja...

O pristan' gorestnykh serdec,
mogila, vernyj put' k pokoju,
kogda zhe budet vzjat toboju
bednyj pevec, bednyj pevec?

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
