In A Railroad Station (Russian translation)

In A Railroad Station

We stood in the shrill electric light,
Dumb and sick in the whirling din
We who had all of love to say
And a single second to say it in.
 
"Good-by!" "Good-by!"--you turned to go,
I felt the train's slow heavy start,
You thought to see me cry, but oh
My tears were hidden in my heart.

Пронизанные светом ламп,
Стояли молча в море звуков;
Нам про любовь сказать и дня
Не хватит в горький миг разлуки.
 
«Прощай!» – «Прощай!» – уходишь ты,
И поезд медленно отходит;
Расплачусь, думал, но смотри –
Я в сердце скрыла все тревоги.
