The Rose
By Alexander Pushkin (1799–1837)
 
Translation of Thomas Budd Shaw

WHERE is our rose, friends?
  Tell if ye may!
Faded the rose, friends,
  The Dawn-child of Day.
  Ah, do not say,        5
Such is life’s fleetness!
  No, rather say,
I mourn thee, rose,—farewell!
Now to the lily-bell
  Flit we away.        10
