Mikhail Lermontov The Sail The sail is whitening alone In a blue obscurity of sea: What did it leave in country own? What does it want so far to see? The wind is strong, the mast is creaking, The wave is playing with the wave ... But not a fortune is it seeking, Nor from this fortune is its way. By it a stream is bright as azure, By beams of sun it's warmed and blessed But it is seeking gales as treasure, As if the tempest gives a rest.
М. Лермонтов «Парус» Белеет парус одинокой В тумане моря голубом!.. Что ищет он в стране далекой? Что кинул он в краю родном?.. Играют волны — ветер свищет, И мачта гнется и скрыпит... Увы! он счастия не ищет, И не от счастия бежит! Под ним струя светлей лазури, Над ним луч солнца золотой... А он, мятежный, просит бури, Как будто в бурях есть покой!
