Sergei Rachmaninov (1873-1943)
In the silence of a secret night (words by Afnassy Fet)
For quite a long time in the silence of the night secretly,
I will try to get rid of your cunning whisper,
Smile, eyes, looks, your hair, banish all this from your thoughts
and then seek it all again. Repeat our old conversations, remember
the feelings and in spite of all sense, cry loud your name in the night.
