Pushkin’s farewell to the sea. 1877 painted by Repin
Я помню море пред грозою:I remember the sea before a thunderstorm:
Как я завидовал волнам,How I envied the waves
Бегущим бурной чередою

С любовью лечь к ее ногам!
Running in a stormy succession

Laying down at her feet with love!
Как я желал тогда с волнамиHow I longed then with the waves
Коснуться милых ног устами!To touch her dear feet with my lips!
Нет, никогда средь пылких днейNo, never in the midst of the ardent days
Кипящей младости моейof my Boiling youth
Я не желал с таким мученьемI did not want with such torment
Лобзать уста младых Армид,To kiss the lips of the young Armides,
Иль розы пламенных ланит,Or the roses of fiery cheeks,
Иль перси, полные томленьем;Or a breast full of languor;
Нет, никогда порыв страстейNo, never did a rush of passions
Так не терзал души моей!so tormented my soul!
translated by Bayard Barbara

перси: -устаревшее слово, сейчас не используется и означает грудь, передняя часть тела, от шеи до живота.

перси is an outdated word that is not used now and means chest, front of the body, from neck to abdomen.
