The king’s insidious flatterer, a great nobleman,
In the depths of the heart concealing malice poison
Not by the valor of the soul – Ascended by a Sodding
You sneak at me with contempt way of your look!
Will I appreciate your attention to me with praise?
Do I humble myself by being humiliated by you?
One dignity and happiness for me,
That by the feelings of the soul - you are not equal to me! ..
1810. Mikhail V. Milonov
