Aleksandr Pushkin

Thou and You

She substituted, by a chance,
For empty "you" -- the gentle "thou";
And all my happy dreams, at once,
In loving heart again resound.
In bliss and silence do I stay,
Unable to maintain my role:
"Oh, how sweet you are!" I say --
"How I love thee!" says my soul.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, September, 1999
Edited by Dmitry Karshtedt, December, 1999
