   ***

Сжала руки под тёмной вуалью... Dark my veil. Hands clenched painfully, tightly.
"Отчего ты сегодня бледна?" "Why so white-faced? " "To think, just to think!
- Оттого, что я терпкой печалью It was I made him drunk; of the biting
Напоила его допьяна. Wine of sorrow I forced him to drink.
 
Как забуду? Он вышел, шатаясь, "How forget? Out he staggered with failing
Искривился мучительно рот... Strength, and face oddly twisted and grim.
Я сбежала, перил не касаясь, I ran down without touching the handrail,
Я бежала за ним до ворот. To the gateway I ran after him.
 
Задыхаясь, я крикнула: "Шутка " 'Please don't go!' I gasped out. 'I was only
Все, что было. Уйдешь, я умру". Jesting... Please!.. Or I'll die...' With a blind,
Улыбнулся спокойно и жутко With a terrible smile, almost tonelessly,
И сказал мне: "Не стой на ветру". He brought out: 'Do not stand in the wind.' "
