Aleksandr Pushkin

ALEXANDR PUSHKIN: "In Vain I've Thought to Hide..."

"In Vain I've Thought to Hide..."

1820
In vain I’ve thought to hide, O, my enchanting friend,
The roughly cheated heart’s indifferent agitation.
You’ve understood me well – it’s passing by – my passion,
My love is coming to its end . . .
And they’re forever lost – the hours of exultation,
The blessed time’s changed by one, the hard,
Extinguished all youthful intentions,
And hope died in my heart.


Translated by Yevgeny Bonver, March 22, 2005
