Pesnja Selima

Language: Russian (Русский)

Mesjats plyvjot, i tih i spokojen,
A junosha-voin na bitvu idjot.
Ruzhjo zarjazhajet dzhigit,
A deva jemu govorit:
,,Moj milyj, smeleje vverjajsja ty roku,
Molisja vostoku, bud' veren proroku,
Ljubvi bud' vernej.
Lubvi izmenivshij izmenoj krovavoj,
Vraga ne srazivshij, pogibnet bez slavy;
Dozhdi jego ran ne obmojut,
Zveri kostej ne zarojut!``
Mesjats plyvet, i tih i spokojen,
A junosha-voin na bitvu idet.
A junosha-voin na bitvu idet.
