I have outlived my own desires


I have outlived my own desires

I have outlived my own desires

In English, translated by Fledermaus, Евгений Сухарников, © 2021

I have outlived my own desires
I now detest my own dreams
My suffering never expires
And is no longer what it seems

Under the storm of the cruelest fate
My flowering wreath wilted away
I languish in a disheartened state
And only for the end, I pray

So is benumbed with tardy cold
As wintry blizzard howls in grief
Stuck on a twig, naked and old
Is shaking last remaining leaf

Я пережил свои желанья,
Я разлюбил свои мечты;
Остались мне одни страданья,
Плоды сердечной пустоты.

Под бурями судьбы жестокой
Увял цветущий мой венец —
Живу печальный, одинокой,
И жду: придет ли мой конец?

Так, поздним хладом пораженный,
Как бури слышен зимний свист,
Один — на ветке обнаженной
Трепещет запоздалый лист!..
