Do not count hours of separating,
try not to sit inactive under the window.
Oh, my friend! My delicate companion!
Do not observe moderate movement of time
with defiant bitterness.
Be not exhausted! Long exasperating day
will pass away.
Accept your visitors with compulsory grin.
Do not avoid small talks!
Be not downcast
and do not become suddenly pale.
When exuberant shadow will keep running from the fragrant slopes
to the boundaries of fields
the luxurious day will walk
from the heights of Ural
as if palace of .Sardanapalus
Then Tired moon will leave long dim cloud abode
and tail its adored star.
Also, in the feeling of reward
I will go to the waterfall for you.
There the water is coming
from the cup of spring
in the wide waves
and flowers enjoy
Oh, come faster than birds.
- From nightfall to dawn
the confused night will fly.
But now the wave is sparkling
and smiling to the stars.
The distant mountaintops are drowsy.
Dull valleys are breezing in humid quietude.
Oh, come! In the restive fog, appear before my eyes
as a white slender shadow...
