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.

На вокзале

Versions: #1#2#3
Стояли мы в ярком свете ламп,
Подавлены, немы и шум вокруг;
На то, чтоб о всей любви сказать
Имели всего секунду одну.
 
"Прощай!", "Прощай!"- ты готов уйти,
Мне слышен вагонов тяжелый лязг;
Ты думал заплачу, но слёзы мои
Запрятаны в сердце у меня.
