The Ophelia's Song - Poem by Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Blok

Your sweetheart forever leaving,
Friend, you swear me to love! ...
And in lands of boring living
To preserve the pledge above! ...

Outside our Denmark, happy,
Your dark shores lay in grief...
And the tide, enraged and gabby,
Washes tears on a reef...

Dressed not in the silk and silver,
My sweet hero will come back...
In the coffin just will shiver
Bands and feathers - black...
