Shadows are still 
Oh, everywhere 
I hear to their crooked whisper 
And breathing of time 
Is laying there 
I see their humble awing twister 
Their lighted shy touch in the falls 
Of autumnal leaves I feel 
In breeze-wind from sea, in cracks of walls 
Tearing their wax red seal 
I see the ball 
With smile of ladies 
And laughters so shady 
The dances are rattling 
On stone-bridges dead 
And horses are mettled
Dimensions are wed

Shadows are flying o'er the great city 
Times coexist and ready to greet it 
Shadows are lying like haze in a pity 
Murmuring, soughing they are so wilted 
With bitter sighs they fill the thoughts 
And moans of past years 
In dead oblivion they rot 
And mem'ry its own tears 
New world is alien to them 
They are from lighted wears 
With noble eyes and full of gem 
But death so cruelly rears 

Shadows of past are frozen in columns 
They look at us reproachfully 
Remember the Glory of the Empire 
They now see decay and stench!

Shadows of this city
Shadows of this city
And now they sight 
From rusty roofs so bright 
In drops from Neva bay 
In Northern Sun's grey ray 
They're everywhere, believe 
The shadows of the lived 
The shadows of the walls 
The shadows of the stones
