Shadows of the City
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 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 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
