Я полутемный помню зал,
И в этой полутьме
Ты мне ни слова не сказал -
Лишь сделал шаг ко мне.
А дальше было, как в кино:
Слепяще-яркий свет,
И за плечом твоим окно
И тонкий силуэт...
Она спиною к нам с тобой
Стояла у окна.
Но, Боже мой, но, Боже мой,
Как вздрогнула она!

The semi-darkness of the hall.
In this unlighted place
You didn't talk to me at all,
Just made a single pace.
Like in the movies of my youth,
A bright and blinding flare –
The open window next to you,
Some silhouette was there...
Sure, with her back to us she stood,
All in the window's glow.
But, oh, my God! But, oh my God!
How she had shuddered though!
